8 hp yamaha motor

I purchased a boat last winter (2007). It came with a zodiac which had an 8 hp yamaha outboard motor. The motor was winterized for last season. I used my boat a lot this season but never got a chance to use the outboard/zodiac. It's been in indoor storage since last winter. Do I need to have anything done to it for continued winter indoor storage this season or should what was done last season suffice considering it went unused this year. Thanks

This was my first season as a boater so excuse the ignorance of my question.

What you should do is drain the fuel from the engine and the tank. I would also pull the rope start and turn the engine over a couple times just to keep everything oiled.
