In the bilge? You had it in the water without those plugs? You found them laying there after pulling it from the water and want to know where they go?

The only T-handle plug on my boat is the mid-hull drain - big brass thing. Your description of "almost a inch bolt and one wierd one" is indeed going to make it hard to guess what they are. Those descriptions don't ring any bells relative to plugs anywhere in my 2004.

As stated above, the "T" handle one is the center drain, which if you did not have it in and floated the boat, you should have a lot of water in there.
Just guessing on the other 2:
One might be the block drain plug which is located on the right side of the motor(when facing the engine looking towards the rear of your boat). If you follow the block down to where it meets the oil pan, the bolt should be just above that meeting point.
The other one might be the temp sensor from the left side of the motor, which also serves as a point to drain the block from. If this is removed, there would also be a set of wires dangling there with a plug type attachement, which would mate when the sensor is in place.

With that said, if any of these items were out when you ran the boat, you would have a ton of water in your boat, and your engine temp would rise dramtically.
