    Thinking about ordering a SVM (aka Plain Jane). Who should I get one from? Bruce Fowler or Scott Anderson?

    Been thinking about a Plain Jane for a bit as well. I've emailed back and forth with Bruce and he has been very helpful and answered all my questions. Used ones are mostly are out west and coordinating shipping is a process and a bit costly. I'm getting close to going right to Bruce as he's capable of handling everything. FWIW kpd pointed me to a real nice one on Craigs in Santa Barbara today...

    Surflax, where are you in PA? Maybe we could get a deal on shipping for two.

    Bruce does Amtrak. The cheapest way to ship. Call Amtrak Santa barbera and get a quote to your zip.

    I am in Wynnewood, so not too far you. I am not quite ready to jump yet, but maybe soon.

    Not a fan of Bruce. Terrible business ethics. I don't feel like posting the whole story but Ill just say you are waaaayyyy better off with Anderson.

    I replaced my 8' Stoker with an 8' Mitsven Gypsy- thanks Dave! Glassing was terrible on the Stoker. Thanks to my 9' Fish Simmons it's collecting dust...

    Bruce uses Bob Haakenson glassing. No problem there.
