Hello all,

Been a long time member but became inactive here for a few years. Same thing happened to me with fishing. My boat has been sitting for years, maybe 4 ish and it's time to get it back up and running. I used to have this great mechanic who would work on my boat and did great work. This time, I am trying to do what I can before sending it his way.

I will list below all that I think needs some basic maintenance before it's ready to go again. Can anybody just add anything if there is something I am missing.

Change spark plugs
Pump out old gas and add new
New tires on trailer
Get new batteries
Replace engine cooling pump (not sure what this one is called)
Check compression

So as you guys can see, I've pretty much done a list and trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. As far as the pump goes, is there an online place I can look for that? Is there a specific model I will need?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
