After putting boat in the water went to check oil level and found water in bilge. Did not reach side compartments in the back of my 2000 maristar but then checked drain plug in middle of boat and low and behold forgot to put plug in. Any way water could get in oil and trans fluid. Checked oil seemed translucent. Trans fluid appeared reddish pink.

It is a good idea to change both the oil and transmission fluid if you had a lot of water in the bilge. Call it preventative maintenance...kinda like putting the plug in before launching.
