Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
This is a little tough to answer because the term "winterizing" means different thing to different people. If the boat was properly winterized, then all you would need to do is hook up a battery, check your oils, and off you go. Have you tried starting it up yet?
Some folks add antifreeze to the engines, others do no not and simply store them dry. If it does have antifreeze in it, it is supposed to be what they call non-toxic RV type antifreeze. (This stuff in this link - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NKUL72W/ref=pd_day0_263_6?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00NKUL72W&pd_rd_r=0STKESYMPWQEANM64NT5&pd_rd_w=tTXlo&pd_rd_wg=eIgLM&psc=1&refRID=0STKESYMPWQEANM64NT5
As long as the proper antifreeze was used you can simply start it up, and the engine will dump the antifreeze out of the exhaust. It's non toxic so it won't hurt pets or fish, should you start it up in a lake.
