It didn't go as planned, I prepped the boat and cleaned it up. Installed the batteries and she turned over right away! Everything looked good. To be sure I hooked up the garden hose to the engine to allow the engine to warm up and charge the batteries then the overheat alarm went off! I wasn't getting any water flow out of the "pee hole". I cleaned the lines and water sputtered out then nothing. No launching that day, so I contacted an ex football player I coached in high school who owns Crocker's Boat Yard in Manchester By-the-Sea which is a Honda dealer. Skip sent a mechanic to my house and discovered the thermostat was all fouled up. A new thermostat and I was good to go. However my nice clean boat wasn't clean any more from another week sitting under the trees. At least I can clean it again at the dock.
Crocker's Boat Yard to the rescue!
