If your boat was winterized the same way that i winterize mine, all you have to do is put it in the water and start it up. I just take the main water intake loose, but it in a 5 gallon bucket of marine fresh antifreeze, run the motor till antifreeze starts coming out and then shut it down. This fills the motor with antifreeze instead of freezable water.
Your battery is probably unhooked, hence no power. Either that or the battery wasn't unhooked over the winter and it went completely dead.

some shops will pull the battery. or disconnect it for sure. find your batt and make sure its there and hooked up.

i checked the battery connections the other weekend everything looked to be in tact, i was thinking maybe a primary switch near the perko for the dual batts. thanks for the help.

Has the battery been on a trickle charger this winter? If not you have a dead battery.

make sure that all of the hoses are connected in the engine. i dont know the specifics, but i do no that my shop disconnects the water hose and a few other things and you need to make sure they are all in tact.
