Consider "summerization" is the process of checking everything to make sure its ready to go.

There's nothign special about it - you just want to make sure everything is tip top in the driveway so that nothing fails on the lake.

Check all the fluids, visually inspect all the fittings, hoses, clamps, drive belts, wires. Make sure drains are closed, hoses are in place etc.

On impellers - darned near every I/O boat as a raw water impellor and almost none of those are removed during either winterization or summerization. Keep a spare and know how to install it.

Figure out how to run your boat on a hose, fire it up and run it checking for any leaks and make sure you get water out the exhausts etc.

Then you should be good to go.
