Can anyone shed any light on how 6 litres of water has found its way into my engine. it had been stood for 4 1/2 months and before starting it I checked the oil and it was sky high, I was confused and thought it had to be water, coolant level was as I left it and the seacocks were closed as I had left them at the beginning of December, I sucked out just over 6 litres of water with the oil extraction pump, I called Boulters engineer to ask if he had any ideas he didn't, he said sabotage, only the boat yard have keys. we ruled out condensation, this has never happened before and if it has I have not been aware of it.

Any Ideas?

Looks like river water or rainwater to me. But how? Very odd!! Good job you checked it before you tried to start her. Could have been very costly.

coolant level was unchanged it was put in on the weekend I left it beginning of December fresh for the winter. i didnt taste it but it just smelt like dirty water. i started the engine after draining the water and it ran normally apart from slightly high oil pressure, so will change the oil flush it then new oil and filter. it was over 4 bar when first started and cold on tickover but lowered as it started to warm

Hi 50=60lb is normal at 1600rpm and 15/25 on tick over, is oil milky colour?if river water the only direct way is through exhaust manifold where water is injected from heat exchanger, or the possibility of water leaking into air filter from deck. John

No Idea how the water has got in, its a centre cockpit cruiser engine under floor in cockpit, no sign of water anywhere else, bilge pump working fine, no sign of higher water levels in bilge, oil normal black colour, I did notice slight milky deposits inside the oil filler cap but put that down to condensation, I am getting worried someone might have put it in, only me and Herbert woods have keys and I haven't been there since beginning of December. no signs of break in. I  have took pictures of how I have left things this time, and have a motion detection webcam watching now so if it was sabotage were ready to catch em.

tick over was over 60 bar but gradually lowered as she warmed up, I guess the oil filter has clogged up with the bit of water I couldn't remove.

60 psi surely!
60 bar is the sort of pressure you get down an oil well in the North Sea  Smile
I am interested to know how you knew that there was water in there as it would have been at the bottom of the sump. It couldn't have been in there for long when the engine was running otherwise you would have a load of emulsion everywhere and I certainly wouldn't run the engine any more until I had changed the oil and filter.
If it had entered through the exhaust manifold you would think it would have flooded the cylinders that had open exhaust valves and not really made it into the sump in such a large quantity.
You need to check again for water ingress next visit.
