How's it going guys.

I recently came to own an 89 ragazza 285. The boat was my dads who passed away on mar 24. He hadn't used the boat in a few years and id like to get it back in working order. It has a 350 w an inc drive. When it was parked and winterized the last tine it ran fine. Wha would b the first things I should do towards getting it ready for the water again?

Thanks for any help you may be able to give

Hi and welcome. Sorry to hear about your father. If it were my boat, I would take it in to a good merc mechanic and have the engine serviced and tuned up with new plugs and filters (fuel/oil) and then have them pull the drive off and service/ install new gaskets as well. Probably want to siphon any fuel out of the tank and fill up with new good gas. Adding a can of Sea Foam to the fuel wouldn't hurt either.
