After getting her up on step coming away from the boat launch, about 1/2 a mile down the river she drastically slows down, I was at 3300 rpm doing 6 mph. She was doing 18 prior to. I pull her over and check the impeller for debris, as well as the grate. Nothing. I start her back up and again no faster than 6 mph. I have the wife drive and I go check the engine compartment just to find out its 1/2 full of water. I can visually see water spraying out of this hole on the bell housing that approx 3/4 inch in diameter. Something that had never happened before. So I pull her over and bilge it all out. And I limp back to boat launch where other issues took placebut that's neither here nor there. My Queston is, is this a freeze plug port that had popped out? Our does anyone know what this is? I included some pics, its just off to the side of the wiring.
