Official Kick-Off to the Season…Have a Great Memorial Day Weekend!

As we honor those who have served and sacrificed for our country, we are also excited that the boating season arrives at last. Mother Nature may not be fully cooperating at the moment, but it is only a matter of time before the warm temps and the flat lakes of summer arrive.

We have been busy as bees getting the marina ready as starting Saturday Putter-Port returns, the Romper Room opens, and the pool opens as well. See the side column for “R” hours.

Plus, we will always have your favorite flavor of Ice Cream here at your home-port! So be sure to join us this weekend as we celebrate and thank the servicemen and veterans for their service to this great nation and offer remembrance of those we have lost.

We hope to see you dockside!….

Launch well underway…wood you believe it!

We know that is a tough pun to swallow, but every once in a while we get to launch a boat that looks like art work. That actually is the fun of launch, getting to see the wide variety of boats that owners enjoy here at your home-port, like this classic 1972 Lake Erie Lyman.

You can see this captain has his boat in ship shape with lines and fenders at the ready. So, as Memorial Weekend soon approaches now might be the time to get your crew back on the water and we’re here to help.

We hope to see you dockside!

 

Things are heating up at your home-port!

Ditch the parkas and sweaters because Mother Nature has shifted into high gear this week with some great temps in the mid-80’s. This has allowed our crew to get more boats in the water and with each splashdown we near the beginning to another great boating season.

The Lake has been a thing of beauty and even the fish are getting in on the act as they wake up hungry and search out the first bated hook they can find.

So if you have not already made your launch plans, now would be a good time to get that Launch Order filled out and turned in to the ship’s store. If you need help scheduling services stop by and let us assist you. We’re now open 7 days a week from 9-5.

If you searching for a place for your ship to call home. Look no further we have plenty of good docks available just waiting for the right captain and crew. Stop by Romp’s Lake Erie Marina and let us show you what we have to offer, which is a summer full of family fun.

Launch the boats, Launch the boats, Launch the boats…

As you can see we have three things on the to-do list. Well, with the onset of warm weather we have quite a bit to-do but thankfully it all focuses on getting the boats in ship-shape and in the water. That’s great news as all week we have been servicing and launching all manner of vessels.

In fact, some of the early birds have enjoyed quite a bit of flat lake already. Here was Thursday:

A bit Cool, yes, but Warm days are just around the corner!

You can bet we’re busy as bees in fact, we didn’t let the cooler air slow us down, we even found a nice pool under that winter cover.

Longer, warmer days at your Home-port.. A sign of the good things to come!

Busy, busy times here at your Family Fun Marina. We have been helping get captains ready and their boats into the water as the weather slowly warms toward season norms. Even the reports of Walleye fishing are looking up as anglers head toward open water once launched.
