water in my oil ,its like white sludge

HI MY BOAT HAD A LEAK,water went really high inside the boat.I checked the oil before getting under way. It looked OK. I ran the engine for about 2 hours at full throtle. The next day I checked the oil and it's like white goo.I guees water got into the engine. I'm trying to pump it out,but it's really thick like glue.I tried a hand pump and one of the type that runs off a drill, but I can't get the mess out of my engine. I started the engine to warm it, and now the gauge is reading zero oil pressure.i'M THINKING ABOUT DRILLING A HOLE THROUGH THE OIL PAN TO GET IT OUT. Do I have to pull the engine? How can I get the oil pressure back up. I have been dealing with it for 2 weeks now.Please help!!! Dave with really big problems in Brooklyn,Thank you
