If there was water and a milky color in the fuel is a good indication of water. Then the fuel system should be flushed out to make sure no water is remaining. The crankcase may need to be dried out as well as any water vapor at all will cause the plug to misfire. Take the plug out and pull the engine over a lot very rapidly to help remove any trapped water remaining in the crankcase. If you have a compressor, blowing out the crankcase through the spark plug opening will help clear it out. If water was the only problem then the saw should be alright, you might remove the muffler and inspect the cylinder and piston area for any damage, if you see any deep scoring or scuffing then there may be more to it then just some water.

hmm, did you use a replacement plug the manufacturer specified? and.. usually you might not see a spark in the sunlight, take it to somewhere darker and try to see a spark. OR, maybe the spark is too small, if there is rust on the sides of the flywheel shave them off, and like 30yr empty gas and check oil! there might be water in the oil too.. where did you store this?
