Id bee about 99% sure it didnt freeze in there, this boat was from a lake near destin, fl, its very rare for us to be in that cold of weather long enough for water to freeze.
I dont have a starter to look at, it didnt come with the motor. I dont have a clear history of what conditions it sat. Based on the looks of it, Im going on assuming the whole motor was basically under water at some point, or at least in a really heavy rain storm without the engine cover on, and with the carb off.
