Re: whos got an outboard motor?
I don't own an outboard but know my way around an engine. I would do the following which has already been mentioned.
Drain the tank, fire up the engine till it dies, check for a drain on the bowl of the carb, I doubt there is one but if so open and drain any remaining gas.
Drain any and all water. Don't think this is a problem with outboards, should be dry.
Keep the battery on a trickle charger.
Oil is a good idea, if you want the extra protection, do it.
I have never used stabil, I hear its a good product, I just don't believe in additives--just my .02
