Yamaha 5HP Air Cooled

Hi guys, just a quick question for some advice on the procedure of starting a 2 stroke engine that has been sat for over a year, probably hasn't had the carb drained of fuel etc.. was just taken off the boat and stored in a shed for the past 14 months.

Will the carb or any other parts need cleaned before it will run ?
If so, what type cleaner can i use ? straight petrol ?

Could someone give just a quick run down of what i can do to get the engine running?

It is an old air cooled 5hp Yamaha

fresh fuel and see what happens, no need for a strip down unless its necessary.
