Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Anyone know anything about the DELHI Manufacturing Corporation? It appears they are out f bussiness. I have just bought an older 16 foot JOn that has a DELHI Stamp on it with just a serial number. No model number in that box and no date of manufacture. Is there a way to find out what I have by serial??

I am in process of doing some mods, maybe add a deck, replacing transom wood, maybe add a few things like storage and live well. ANy body else done one of tehse 16 footers?

I use to see them in South Arkansas and North Louisiana in the early 80's when I lived there. They were located in Delhi,La (just outside Monroe). They made aluminum boats during the 1970's - 1981/82 when they went out of business. They also made fiberglass boats under the "Terry Bass Boat " name. Sorry..can't help with decoding the serial number. Ken
