Adventures of Promise

Dale and Christina Hardy

Dale and Christina are the owners and crew / laborers of Promise







Christina is an ARNP currently licensed in the states of Ga. and Fl. She obtained her national certification through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.  Christina enjoys the freedom cruising gives her.  She loves being in touch with nature and being exposed to the open air and water.  She feels that being underway reduces the stress of everyday life, and provides great opportunitities for travel and meeting new and interesting people.

Dale is a retired Peace Officer.  Complete happiness for Dale is being on a small boat many miles off-shore with nothing visible but the ocean and sky.

The above left picture was taken underway from Slidell, La. to Mobile Al. in March of 2009. The above right picture was taken on the beach in Bimini, Alicetown, Bahamas in 2005. We have made two trips to the Bahamas and several shorter trips along the gulf coast and the Keys since purchasing Promise in September of 2000. Some of our favorite ports are Ft. Myers Beach, Fl., Tarpon Springs, Fl., Bimini, Staniel Cay, Warderick Wells, and Clarencetown, all located in the Bahamas. Our goal is to add many more favorite places to the list.

We are currently making a shake-down cruise along the Gulf Coast.

Sailing Vessel Promise

This is a picture of S/V Promise anchored off Whale Cay in the Berry Islands, Bahamas. Promise's current homeport is Panama City, Fl. Promise was previously homeported in Slidell, La.until she was moved in May of 2011. Promise is a Taiwanese built Tung Hwa 36' ketch with bragging rights of 42'. She is a stable boat in rough seas but gives up speed for comfort. Promise rode out Katrina, near the eye wall,  with very little damage.  She is our avenue to experience the DREAM.
