Smile Diesel engine help

I recently bought a 36' project sailboat at auction and the engine has not been started in about a year. It is a pretty new Isuzu Marine Diesel with very little rust or corrosion. What should I do to the engine before I start it? Does anyone know of a good guide on this subject? I don't anything about diesel engines but am mechanically inclined, have tools, and lots of time (but not much cash). Thanks.
