"Dawn lubes the impeller and keeps it from burning up.'

The impeller will need to be replaced after almost 3 years on shore.

If the engine is to be cranked I would spray Fogging Fluid thru the intake , it will last longer on the cylinder walls than diesel.

Stop spraying if the engine shows signs of starting.

"Why don't you just pickle it properly? "

Why this was not done on the haul out is a good question.

Sealing the intake and exhaust is a good idea to slow moisture that comes in with barometric changes.

Drain the exhaust lift muffler first if installed.
