Re: is this like a 12 step program?

Gonna be a education for sure. Not sure where to start. I understand concern about keeping it original and about keeping the motor. She ran good in 2001, that was the last time we had it in the water. I'm guessing the carbs need cleaned and fuel lines need flushed or replaced. Our biggest concern is...
