Here’s a quick shot of the our lake erie marina in between thunderstorms last Friday. We wanted to show you that even in a brief cool down every dark cloud has a silver lining!
Sounds catchy doesn’t it? The Sun starts to shine, temps roll up in the 70′s every day and the boats start to make quite a splash around here. As you can see in the image below if you start with a good morning, it all flows smoothly from there.
So our job is to get going and get the boats in the water so our captains and crews can start enjoying the many sunny days ahead.
Remember Memorial Day weekend is getting closer. So make sure you have your ship in shape and get those launch orders filled out and turned in soon. You don’t want to miss the boat!
What a difference it makes when the Sun shines brightly every day. Boat after boat has been seen venturing back to their natural habitat here at your home-port.
Another couple of weeks like this and we’ll have the whole fleet a’ floating. So don’t be left dockside, get your ship in shape and your launch scheduled soon. After all there’s a weekend waiting just for you!
Say what you want about Ohio weather, when it turns for the better it sure looks great. We are starting to really get things moving at your home port. This week the weather has been cooperating as more and more boats make a splash.

So don’t duck out on spring. Get your vessel in ship shape and into the water before the rush starts! After all, it’s time to get quack’n.
From under the shrinkwrap they come; boats of every size and color migrating back to the water. This weekend the forecast looks pretty good with highs in the 60′s and mostly sunny on Saturday, with Sunday holding a chance of rain.

When you get a soggy day like yesterday you just have to remind yourself that April showers are needed and of what is ahead. Of course below you can see we are starting to get glimpses of summer with these nice sunsets over boats that are starting to fill the marina.
Every day we inch closer to warmer weather and the boating season. We here at your home-port can’t wait. Family fun is right around the corner with every extra hour of daylight.
So don’t miss out on summer, stop by and see what Romp’s Family Fun marina has to offer your crew this season. After all, where would your boat like to spend the summer?
This week we finally got a taste of what’s ahead as we woke up to temps in the lower 80′s Thursday. While it was short lived, we certainly took advantage of the warmth and sunshine to uncover the pool and get it started.
You never know what sneaky thing winter has done until the pool cover comes off. Low and Behold the water looked as pristine as when it went to bed last fall. So pretty soon we will have it looking just like the picture below from last summer. So get ready, Memorial Day Weekend is not that far off!
Don’t miss the boat this summer, stop by Romp’s and see all we have to offer your family… Now open 7 days a week!
Just some photos we found cleaning out the computers today looking back on 2012 and making us look forward to 2013. Notice lower on this page we have reset the countdown clock to tick off the time until Memorial Day Weekend, which is the official start to the boating season.
Did you know: Ohio reports that 1 in 4 Ohioans go boating every year. That more than $5.6 million is paid annually in boat registration and titling fees throughout the state, in fact Boaters paid $14.8 million in state marine fuel taxes alone during 2012.
Boating and Tourism is a $40 billion per year industry — Ohio’s 3rd largest — and one that supports the full-time equivalent of approximately 443,000 Ohio jobs that generate nearly $10 billion in direct earnings.
See you dockside!
By now you may have read stories about the Vermilion River so we thought we would give you the latest information available. There has been a lot of talk and articles in the newspaper about the condition of the entrance of the Vermilion Harbor.
We want to share with you the current status as of two weeks ago from the annual soundings that the Vermilion Port Authority takes:
While it is true that there is an area to the west of the entrance that will need some attention, our boaters can rest at ease knowing that the river is indeed ready for boating. Of course you may want to go in and out via the east side of the break wall to avoid the area that has built up due to Super-Storm Sandy.
We also know the City and Port Authority are working diligently to fund the maintenance of the river and they have a long track record of finding and obtaining grants.
We look forward to a great boating year and hope you do too. See you dockside!
Now Open Saturday and Sunday 10-4!
