Let everything dry out real good. Drain oil, change air filter, remove spark plug. Crank engine and see if any water comes out plug hole/s. Make sure no water is in cylinders, then put in new plug/or plugs. With fresh oil in crankcase, try to start engine. Hopefully it will start. Run engine maybe 2 or 3 minutes, then change oil and filter again. Restart, run until oil gets hot, then change oil one more time. Now you should be all set. Good luck.

And dont forget to drain the fuel tank and maybe add some type of water disperser to it and replace the fuel filter
