I have never seen one. So.....Did Higgins install builders plates on their boats? If so what did they look like(if anyone has a photo, please post it here), where were they mounted? What were Higgins builders plates made out of bronze or bakelight?
Take care,

Hi Ted,
Although it was a late war PT-625 class, Here is what they looked like inside PT631 charthouse. Similar, but more stylized font for the Higgins word. Jerry
