1988 Pro 17 Mercury 40 HP

I acquire a 1988 Pro 17 Mercury 40 HP I never own a boat . My first question is how do i go about starting the engine up. Do I need to mix a certain part of gasoline and oil. Where can I get a Manual guiding me through starting my engine up. I know about never run a engine without a water source . Any information would be great Thanks DEB
