if it was compleatly stock then then i would say least likly a gasket being a newer engine it just don't happen that often any more but you never no but it sounds like you have after market gaskets or some one has been in to your engine so it could be a gasket but keep testing first it is hard to get the milk out you may need to go run it on the lake for 20-30 min to get it hot to start clearing out the milk and change the oil a few more times then if it seams to stop change it every 20 hours or so till better then go to every 50 hours.fix them flappers A.S.A.P.

I know a lot ture engine guys will diagree with this but in the past I have seen this a lot and if we could not find any thing wrong with the engine making water but found bad flappers or exshust system then we just fixed it and changed the oil 3-4 times and ran on the hose for 10-15 min each time.then send them on there way and had them come back in 20 hours for a oil change and all seemd ok there after just make shur your temp is geting to specks.the milk in the oil would be about the same as say if the boat sank one day they say just get the water out and change the oil and go run it so yes it should be safe to run it for testing.since you have a procharger it would be a good idea to do a compershion test to help test the head gaskets if that is bad then you will make water.good luck.

? how have you been running the engine.if it is stock there should be a set of holes in the middel of the lower unit just behind the prop on both sides and you will need a set of flushing rubber muffs to go around both sets or holes if you don't have that type of set up then yes but you will need like a big tank to cover all the holes.a tank like they use to give a hores water.keep it full the water will come out the exhaust

Could also be a leak in the innercooler. Procharger innercoolers were known for this problem for awhile.

I would look at head gaskets and check the innercooler.
