Boat in storage


#1

I HAVE AN INBOARD BOAT WITH A MERCRUISER 225 HP WHICH HAS BEEN IN STORAGE FOR 6 YEARS. IT WAS FOG-OILED WHEN PUT IN STORAGE BUT THE FUEL TANK WAS FULL WHEN STORED. WHAT SHOULD I DO TO THE ENGINE IF ANYTHING BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO RUN IT AGAIN? ALSO WHAT TO DO TO THE FUEL TANK? THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!


#2

REMOVE THE TANK, DRAIN AND CLEAN IT. AS FOR THE ENGINE, CHANGE THE OIL, CHECK HOSES BELTS AND HOPE THE GASKETS DON’T LEAK ANYWHERE!!!
