What I was told:
The engine oil was changed when it was winterized. Oil looks good.

Outdrive oil was changed last summer. How do I check it?

What other things should I make sure are ok before I put it in the water?

Things being done this week:
installed the new battery last night and started it.

the blower and bilge pump now isn't working. RPM gauge isn't correct and a few of the gauges quit working... It all worked when we tested it before purchase.....

install the "new" PS pump and PS line.

Depth/Fish Finder install any tips to share?

Install VHF Radio and Antenna. Tips?

The hinge pins for the center window are broke. Not sure how I'm going to fix that just yet.

I hooked up the flusher last night so I could let it run for a bit but I didn't see any water coming out of the prop like I expected. Should it? I had the trim all the way up.
im not far from you, if needed i could come by and lend a hand
