Default S.E. MA mechanic for a '91 Johnson 88 SPL?

Am looking to bring the Whaler in for a basic tune up and carb cleaning as she was running a little rough at low idle at the end of last season. Anyone have a good mechanic for the old girl?
Thanks

I'm sure you will get some input closer to your area, but I will say in Plymouth, MA the guys at Atlantic Boat Rental (Ryan and crew) are spot on with the older rudes and johnsons. Not to mention honest and fair.

Might be too far but Stanley's in Barrington, RI handles old OMC and have a lot of parts in stock.

Thanks - I'm pretty much smack in the middle of Plymouth and Barrington. Have taken her up to Vermont so a haul of 30 miles is no big deal just a hassle if I need to bring it back and forth multiple times. Will give them both a call and see what their schedules are. Thanks for the suggestions
