    Its pretty slim that you cracked the inner. When the water freezes it put the inner in compression, and much less likely to crack. Even if there is a small crack in the inner, it probaby won't matter. The little water that can get thru the would most likely steam off as fast as it entered. If your worried about it, run it on a hose idling for a couple minutes and see if any of the plugs get wet before you spend the money to get them welded

I have another motor i can put in if anything id just hate to have been so stupid i ruined anything else, but thats what i get tryin to own a boat in the snow when living in the sunshine state all my life, il have to mess with it more and hope for the best when i return home.

    I understand that is is cracked on the outside. I have seen it many times. I was suggesting that you can run it on a hose and let it idle for a couple minutes, letting it leak into the boat, but check the plugs and cylinders to see it they get wet, BEFORE you spend the money to have them welded. But i doubt they are cracked in the inner wall.

    Just pull it off. Plug 1 hole and put your waterhose on the other. See if it leaks inside. The riser will block the end of it.
