The final verdict was a massive crack in the block. It's not salvageable. My father is having surgery so he's going to hold off until the spring to make a decision.

I bought my boat with a cracked block from freezing. It was the second time the guy let it happen (duh) so the motor only had 30 hours on it. All the components were good and I had to have everything switched over to a new block bored 30 over. New pistons, rings, bearings, bushings, seals, oil pump, machine work, head work, ect. It was MUCH more cost effective than ordering a new long block. If your going to upgrade though, obviously it wouldn't work. Just a thought...
