Our complete restoration of a family heirloom. Purchased new by the parents of the present owner, used (hard!) as the family boat until the early 90's, she needed just about everything. We even re-created the original "basket weave" upholstery material. Note to Higgins geeks: the factory colors offered were red, blue or burgundy, but mom didn't like any of those. Yellow was specified from the factory, with documentation to prove it. When we stripped the hull, we found robins' egg blue under the yellow; the factory re-painted a finished boat!

The ultimate compliment from our customer: "it looks, runs, feels, and even smells like it did when I was a kid!
