I hope you found the problem but I am doubtful that is why water was in your cylinders. A common practice with sprint cars to remove all fluids in the cylinder before starting is to roll the engine backwards thus by reversing engine rotation all fluids are pushed out the exhaust, again I hope you found it but Im not convinced.

Sprint cars don't have wet exhausts. His marine manifolds have water flowing over the internal exhaust pipe. With the pipe sucking air in, naturally it sucked the manifold cooling water as well.

After rethinking this scenario thru I can see how the water would be sucked into the cylinders when rotating backwards. Good troubleshooting guys !

Just an update. Took the boat out for two hours and it ran great. The engine skipped for the first few minuets but I attribute that to left over water and the oil I put in the cylinders to prevent corrosion.
