Siphon out as much as you can, put in at least 5 gallons of good fuel with a can of gas dryer mixed in, locate the fuel return line from the engine and locate it over a bucket. Turn the key on, wait a few seconds then turn it off, check the bucket, if there is then cycle the key like that until the fuel that comes out in the bucket is all fuel without water mixed in it, put the return line back on and attempt to start it, you may have to crank it over a few times to clear the injectors, but if everything else is in order then it should fire and run, it might run rough for a little while. If you don't get any fuel in the bucket then it is a good chance that the water has ruined the in tank fuel pump? HTH

After it is finally running good fill the fuel tank with good fuel and add some StaBil Marine to the fuel tank, that should take care of the water problem.
