On a serious note....The plan you have is a great way...... to totally ruin the engine, a way to guarantee that every machined surface on the crank, and the cylinder bores, will need machining at rebuild. It also adds the exciting risk of ruining more than that...It could spun a rod bearing too, and ruin the rod, possibly the crank...or spin a main bearing, which ruins the block and possibly the crank.

Water is not a lubricant, get it in the oiling system for a few minutes and it will ruin things fast in a running engine.
