True Love II is a 1961 Cruisers Inc.18’ Model 370 Sea Camper shared with us by John Hough. John says, “True Love I was a 25’ wood sloop I gave my wife Karen as a wedding gift 40 Years ago. This photo was taken by Boat Pics on the way to the picnic at the Sunnyland chapter show in March 2017. My wife Karen and I purchased the boat a year ago. We use her as a “daily driver” and take her on trips, so repowered with a new Yamaha 4 stroke. We still have the original 75 hp Evinrude and all the wiring and controls for it are in place.”
