About the Owners (former and current)

Campbells: Tom Campbell lives in Satellite Beach, FL. and has three kids under the age of four (2009). Tom's been rebuilding Promise and we have this 10 August 09 status report from John Mackie, John William (68), who stopped by and visited Tom.

Manns: After the hurricane we totally cleaned her. Removing batteries, washer/dryer, trash compactor, ice maker, pumps and repaired the fiberglass so that we could float/tow her to our mooring in Grant, Florida in January 2006. Presently we are enjoying the sunsets, fishing, entertaining and feeling her swing on the mooring

Harts: The Harts had always wanted a cruising tug boat and were willing to go to extremes to get one—like starting a company. The company was Lord Nelson, Inc. and the boat was the Victory Tug. After five years, during which seventy 37' tugs and four 49' tugs were built, they finally took delivery of American Victory in 1988. With her they cruised the waters from Seattle to Juneau extensively. She was renamed Nelson's Victory just before her cruise south, through the Panama Canal, and up the East Coast. This was the Hart's third time through the canal having done it previously in their Cheoy Lee 35 and a Grand Banks 49. Nelson's Lady sank in Fort Pierce's City Marina (Florida) when Hurricane Francis struck in the early hours of Sunday, 5 September, 2004 with 105 mph winds. The boat was a total loss for insurance purposes.
