Be aware that if you have a waterlift muffler on the engine, it will suck up water when you crank the engine. If you crank the engine for more than 10-15 seconds, you should close the raw water intake until the engine starts. This is to prevent the engine from sucking in so much water that it enters the cylinders through the exhaust valves, via the water lift muffler. An experienced mechanic should have known this. This sounds like what happened to you.
If it was only being turned over via the starter, it may not be blown, and may be a relatively inexpensive repair.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
