    Default Closing of a good shop

    Seen that J KIMBERLY SERVICE is going out of business, they always treated me good and would show you how to work & adjust stuff on your motor.

    Kim is the best. He always asked about my dog and really cares about his customers. Gonna miss that shop. Allen and Bill are the best wrenches in town. Boats or snow machines.
    I bought numerous motors from him over the years. When I had an issue he would hand me a box of possibles and tell me to square up later. (Motors are a plane ride away)
    Guys like him help make America.
    Live life and love it

    No, I'm so saddened by this news, those guys have been so friendly and helpful to me over the years. If they were too busy they were always willing to talk me through diagnosing and fixing my outboards. They will be missed and leave a huge hole in the boating world for older outboard repair.
