If it don't,... follow the sound of the escapin' air,...

If it were the exhaust manifolds leaking that much water it would have hydro-locked, at the very least you would see excessive moisture on the plugs. I have a crossover setup with a thermostat and boat in 34 degree water and have never had my oil look milky, I'm betting on intake or head gaskets.

Yup,,,,,I agree,,,, pull the plugs and look for a wet/rusty one leading to exhaust manifold,,,,, if not Id be pulling the intake next
I want to live in a world where a chicken can cross the road and not have its motives questioned.

sicktrickrick I'm local to you so let me know if you need anything. I was thinking along the lines of Griff at first but appears to be more than just condensation. Your boat might have been talked about to me a couple weeks ago at a local bar by the owner. She was asking me about size limits on Clinton Lake.
