Info on the Popular Mechanics PM 38 13ft runabout
Does anyone know about the PM 38?
Its plans were posted in a 1962 Popular Mechanics.
Back then they bragged about it costing $38 dollars to build, will do 38mph with a 28hp outboard.
I remember one of these attractive boats that was used to follow and train rowers on the Yarra river in Melbourne Australia in the early 60s, but have not been able to find any reference to another.
I'd love to hear from someone who has built one or knows them.
I was considering building one with a few mods like putting a bit of V instead of a flat bottom.
Here is the link to the plans I'm considering. www.svensons.com/boat/?p=RunaboutsOutboard/pm38
Thank you in anticipation

While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
