One question, what part of a starter should I lube? I've replaced two in my career and never lubed either.
beautiful boat, not the way you want to start ownership. Hope all turns out well for you and you are on the water soon!

The shaft where the starter drive (some people call this the bendix) rides.

Great looking boat. I'm sure you will be fine after you get her dried out and change fluids, etc.

One thing we all learn is to know where your plug is. Put the plug & the key in the driver's upholder as soon as you pull her out of the water and up the ramp. That helps you remember to put it back in when you launch, preventing the other more embarrassing drain plug mistake.

Chill out. It ain't that bad.
Worst case you got water in the trans but if the dipstick had a good seal may not even have that.
Looks like big houses there. Got a garage you could dry it out in?
He!! I towed my LT1 PS190 6 hrs home after a camping trip where we got about 6" of rain that night. Water over the floor. Too hungover to notice....haha.
Didn't see it until that night. Drained the water out obviously. Everything else was fine.

Let it dry but there will be little near term problem with starter or alt if they were covered. Rain water is "better" than dirty lake water or salt for sure. Life will likely be shortened but could be 1-4 yrs before it needs to be rebuilt.

For the nubies worried about block freezing - all but zero chance. General rule is 24 degrees for 24 hours before damage. That means, temp does NOT get above 24 degrees for more than a day!
A casual dip overnight will have zero effect. Set out a cup of water, likely it will not even freeze over let alone solid, now consider your block is insulated in the engine compartment and has 500# of metal that also has to cool below freezing before water can freeze.
Changing the fluid just once wont help you if there is water in it. You'll end up doing two or three flushes to be sure there is no water left in the trans fluid...once you run the boat recheck to make sure the fluid is not a milky color.

I go one further and put it in a zip lock bag and zip tie it to the wheel. Nice looking boat by the way.
