What about the oil? Did the same thing about ten years ago and no leaks but milked the oil and pushed it out the dipstick.

i hope all is well,if you come out of this with no cracked block or heads,you need to go to the closest casino and bet big,because you are a lucky man.i have seen plugs pop out and no damage,hope this is the case for you.next year,just for the hell of it,remove the thermostat and dump in 2 gallons of antifreeze after you drain the block.

Oil is clean, checked it every 3 minutes while the boat was running. I do feel very fortunate, luck usually does NOT go my way.

man you are lucky
a buddy of mine last year lost the freeze plugs and put them back in and we ran it on a hose and all was fine until we put it in the water and then it showed up in the oil -guess what new motor cracks in the block



good luck

Got the new Hydromotive, the boat is running awesome, now looking at exhaust to up grade next. My hull is not overly responsive to upgrades, I know it's never going to be a speed demon, it's more of a learning experience for me.
