Coming out of hibernation

Hello,

I'm a fair weather ribber and I tucked my rib away in its shed in September last year and its been there ever since. I guess I will be getting it out soon so I wanted to ask what should I do before zooming off up southampton water?

Should I get a full service? Can I just start her up and go?

Assuming I do need a service can anyone suggest a good person to do it in the Southampton area? Its a Suzuki 4 stoke 90HP.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question - but can you get engineers to come out the the boat? It is on a trailer about 8 miles inland.

Thanks,

Peter

I believe MB Marine (Otherwise Known as The Outboard Centre) have moved to Southampton.
Its a pain as they were my nearest Suzuki dealer.

Give Dean a ring, he was working at Rogue Waves place this morning when I spoke with him. Tel: 07749633797, and yes he will travel.
