Riptide is a TV show set in King Harbor, Southern California, about the exploits of three private detectives who live and work together on the cabin cruiser which gives the show its name.
It ran from 1984 - 1986, 3 seasons and 56 episodes, and featured our three heroes, Nick Ryder, Cody Allen and Murray Bozinsky solving cases and championing the underdog. The show is at least as much about the friendship and interactions between the three men as it is about the detective aspects (including fast cars, fast boats and fast helicopters).
