Its a little further north at KFIT in Fitchburg MA and ask for Mark as he took care of my 82 Archer for ten years and does very good work, and if you can get the plane to him up there he will probably drive to RI if you want him look at the plane as he is an hour away.

You will love an Archer as its easy to fly and maintain and best wishes on your prebuy.
