Corvette engine in boat

I just got my new boat from the states, it's a mastercraft maristar 230vrs.
It has a 96 Corvette 350 engine on board, when I first started it (on water) it overheated pretty fast, then I changed the impeller witch was burned. Started the engine after this operation, it ran great and the temperature was fine!
I took it for a trip and suddenly it started rumbling like it didn't run on all cylinders and the temp went up to 240.F
A friend of mine towed me back, and i opened the oil cap on the valve cover and found water in the oil, after this I disconnected the coil and took compression test, and after testing cylinder #1 the engine started making a knocking sound witch sounded pretty bad.
It's not easy for a norwegian youngster to describe the sound. But does anyone have a clue?? Please!
