Huge Learning Curve

Congrats on your purchase.
Before you winterize her take the time to familiarize yourself with the boats systems by doing the routine maintenance on her even if the engine hours are not yet up.
Change main engine oil
Change main engine antifreeze
Change main engine zincs
Check/Change main engine belts
Check main engine raw water impeller
(Change next season)
Clean main engine raw water strainer.
Change main engine transmission oil.
Now do the same thing to your generator.
Check your batteries
This is all very basic stuff.
After this work you will have a better understanding of your boat and will create your own to do list.
Make lots of notes. By next season you will need them.
Happy Boating.
