    Just some historical research folks I know the post is old
    I have a Delhi Woodstream (14 ft) aluminum riveted, flat bottom boat, Model number 1634-14, Manufactured Aug of 1982 What can be read of the plate indicates 3 persons with a combined weight of 350 lbs is the max passenger weight.

    A Delhi Rep made some remarks on this web site I will find the link and post that here.
    Delhi made a boat line called Terry boats, they also made boats for other manufacturers according to the rep. They were supposed to have made boats for Sears, Montgomery Ward and Bass Tracker. Delhi went out of business (according to the Rep) in the early 1980s and now it appears the Aluminum boat manufacturing operation in Delphi LA. was purchased by Starcraft as one of the stern labels I saw for a 12 foot version of this Jon boat indicated Manufacturer Starcraft Marine Delhi LA 71232.

    When researching I found the following:
    1- I discovered the HIN Suffex for Delhi (DEM) now belong to Starcraft (according to the government HIN trace).
    2- Starcraft still makes a 14 foot Jon boat called the 1436 which looks identical to the Dehi Wood Stream 1634-14
    3- Bass Tracker also makes and identical boat to the Delhi Wood Stream The Bass Tracker is called the Tracker Topper 1436 and its a riveted aluminum Jon Boat, this boat may be made for Bass Tracker by Starcraft.

The serial nimber is on a small metal plate but no vin. #. The serial number is 3009. I would appreciate any help to locate the vin. #.
    Thanks

    For History sake:
    Delhi is now owned by Starcraft Marine
    The HIN is on the Starboard side, "water side" of the Stern, pop riveted just below the gunwale. Metal plate with the HIN stamped into the plate

    The first three letters would be DEM (Delhi manufacturing code) then T followed b numbers (Sequence of build) then M followed by a year indicator (two digits) and then a month indicator.

    I know this thread is old but hopefully I can find some help here. This is the closest post to help I've found on any site.

    I have a 12 ft 1974 Jon boat flat bottom .. would anyone here happen to have the USCG tag for this boat/ model. I've talked with Starcraft marine and they can not help me because their records only go back to 1983.
