There is no such thing as a 1996 Riddle. Doug wasn't producing boats then.

I think you are right. When did weldcraft sell? Doug was at 1993 Portland boat show with a 25 anniversary Weldcraft.

I bought a new 1993 Weldcraft 18' outboard jet ran the Snake and Salmon. Good times and nice boat.

This 1996 looks like a great boat for somebody to get looks clean.

From Riddle web page on it history.


The first time Norm Riddle laid his eyes on the Snake River, his awe was shared with his son, Doug. In the early 1960's, Norm Riddle built his first aluminum jet boat for the log drive for Potlatch Forest Products. After building boats for various companies around the Lewis-Clark Valley, Norm decided that there was potential to make a business out of it. Large corporations and federal agencies were his only customers, however, in the late 1960's an interest in a boat for recreations purposes was budding. Norm built the company from the ground up with the help of his son, Doug. In 1978, Doug took over the company, while his father continued his Hell's Canyon guide service with Snake River Outfitters. Since then, Doug has been redesigning and modernizing jet boats to suit the ever changing rivers and customers. Norm Riddle passed away November 3, 2014 at the age of 87.

Looks like it can be a 1996

I thinking Doug sold Weldcraft to a Electrical guy in the valley and after that Jim Moore bought it. Don't know if Doug had a no compete with either. I think Jim sold to Renaissance. Riddle named boats started appearing around that time. I swapped out a American Turbine around mid to late 90's and Jim Moore told me he owned Weldcraft. I think Jim went to Renaissance for a while after that.

If the HIN starts with URR its a Riddle. If it starts with WCD its a Weldcraft. I'm not sure what others are
