Warm thoughts for Cold Days….

There’s an old saying that goes “The future always holds a chance for improvement” and no where is this more true then during an Ohio Winter. Here at your Homeport we are soooooo looking forward to the Boating Season just around the corner, we literally can’t wait.

In fact today we’re here to remind you of some warm thoughts, of Summer fun at here Romp’s, of kids playing and days fishing and relaxing on the lake. That with the heat of summer the cold memories of winter will melt away. This, we hope, will help get you through these winter blahs.


So even though the white stuff may be blowing and piling up outside, just know that it won’t be long until we are right back in the swing of things here at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina. We look forward to serving all of our captains and crews and above all promise to not make a single complaint about the heat this summer, not one!

So hang in there, summer will arrive on schedule and when it does we’ll be ready, we promise!


Despite the cold, we’re thinking Spring..

We know that it’s hard to think warm thoughts when Mother Nature keeps piling on the cold. But we’re here to tell you that there will be a spring and we are sooooo looking forward to it.


So why the winter blahs may have you in their grips for the moment, just remember that it won’t last forever and when summer finally shows itself, we here at your home-port will be ready for all your boating needs. After all, there is no better medicine to beat the wintertime blues then some good old sunshine and making a splash or two. We hope to see you dockside!


Happy Valentine…to the one that floats your boat!~

We would like to wish everyone a very happy St. Valentine’s Day this Saturday. As everyone knows that there is nothing more romantic then long sunset cruises on Lake Erie during those great summer evenings, you will have to remind your significant other that the boating season is not that far off.


In a couple more weeks,  there will be plenty of time to start planning those great times together outdoors with loved ones. Maybe you can get them some flowers or candy as a reminder such as these.


Either way, we know that it’s a good time for couples to show their appreciation for each other and wish everyone a great day. After all it was the Beatles that said, “Love is all you need”, and who are we to disagree with that, Enjoy!


Cold?… Think Warm Thoughts!

We know it’s tough to get through an Ohio winter, the best way is to start thinking warm thoughts about the Spring and Summer days that follow.


We want you to know that while the snow may be flying outside, we’re inside getting things ready for the next great boating season right around the corner.


So look for the the little signs, like the days are getting longer, to know what we will be ready when you are at your home-port. And when your ready to decide where your boat wants to spend the summer give us a call here at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina, we’d love to get you thinking warm thoughts!


Till then we hope to see you dockside!


Thank You…to the best customers anywhere!

We had such a great time at “R” Open House and the turnout was so well attended that we thought we would take a minute and say thanks to all who attended.


Of course a business is only as good as it’s customers, so in that regard we think we are fortunate to have some of the best anywhere. To brave the cold and snowy conditions to share a day of talk about sunshine and the days of flat lakes ahead, it truly was great fun.


If your crew is looking for a new place to drop anchor, then look no further, we would love to have you stop by and let us show you what we have to offer. After all Summer will soon be approaching so ask yourself this one important question “Where would my boat like to spend the summer?”



Thanks again to all of our Captains and Crews, and for future Captains… we hope to see you dockside at your favorite Lake Erie Marina!




“R” Open House Weekend… Don’t miss the boat!

Sure it’s January and a bit chilly outside, but that does not mean you can’t have some fun. Of all times of the year, this time is the best to start thinking warm thoughts about summer and Lake Erie, and there’s no better place to do that then here at your home-port with friends and other boaters!


Jan 24th and 25th from 11am to 2pm 

So this weekend you can gather in the warmth of fun at our annual Open House and customer appreciation weekend. Romp’s Dockers get free lunch and beverages of choice. Plus a chance at some awesome prizes like a Gas gift cards. Best of all your dock-mates will be here too!


So get the crew ready and chart a course for Romp’s this weekend. New Boaters Welcome!


New Year Resolution…Make a splash this year!

With the New Year usually includes some new resolutions as well. Most of those are based on self improvement, like diet, exercise, family, etc. So here at your Home-Port, we want to help you with the best possible way to improve your year and what could be better then more time in the great outdoors with friends and family.

Though there may be some snow on the ground now, we are counting down the days until the sun shines bright and the Lake lays flat again.


If your family is anything like ours (pictured above) we can’t wait to get back on the water and into the fresh air after a winter of being cooped up. So make plans now to get your captain and crew back on the water and what better way to do that then to stop by “R” Open House January 24th and 25th  from 11-2. Bring the whole family as we will have prizes and treats, plus we’re here to show you all that Romp’s Lake Erie Marina has to offer your family.

After all, it’s just a matter of time before spring arrives and we can make a splash!

We’re just chilling…

Back from Christmas/New Year break and of course there is much work to be done. We have boats in the shop getting them ready for the boating season just ahead. We have docks in the shop getting a fresh coat of paint and, of course, we are also prepping the store for our upcoming “Customer Appreciation Weekend.” (More detail on that to follow very soon.)


So stay tuned as we work our way through this chilly weather, it’s always a good practice to think warm thoughts so….


We hope to see you dockside! Check “R” hours in the left pane of this page if you need assistance or would like to talk about where your boat would like to spend this summer.

Merry Christmas…and a Ho-Ho-Happy New Year!

Twas the week before Christmas and all through the marina,…well, along with some good cheer, we would like to share some holiday announcements with you. We are taking a bit of a break here at Lake Erie’s Family Fun Marina. We will be off on Christmas through New Year celebrating with family from Friday December 19th to January 4th.


Now, if you need us we still will be in and out of the marina frequently, so please feel free to call or email us at the links on our contact page, and leave a message. We’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible.

We look forward to time with family and it is our hope that each of our captains and crew get to spend time with their loved ones as well. Enjoy this great season, Merry Christmas from the whole Romp’s Team.

Happy Holidays from your Homeport!

Well the Christmas season is in full swing as shoppers head out to gather gifts for their loved ones. Here at your homeport, we too are getting excited to have the spirit of the season upon us.  Though it’s not here yet, we’re even looking forward to a white Christmas.


So even though it’s tough to think about the summer months during this holiday season, we want to remind you that when you give the gift of boating, it lasts beyond just this month, but far into the next year.

Give us a call if you would like to discuss where your Captain would like to spend his next summer. After all, the best presents are the ones that make quite a splash!
