First I would drain all the oil out. Put in new oil. Then take the spark plug out and crank the engine a couple times to get any water out of the cylinder. Then replace the spark plug. If any water got in the gas I would drain the gas and replace with fresh gas. I would also drain the float bowl of the carb to get any water out also if water got in the fuel. Then it should be ok to restart now. Good luck.
