Default Honda 225 oils gone.

Father took the boat out yesterday, ran fine on the way out but on the way back in he had it shut off on its own and throw some alarms. Limped back in (probably a bad move now), tilted up motor and had oil draining out onto the transom. Checked oil and it was gone, but dipstick had clumps of whipped up oil/water. Had oil draining out of the water drain holes on the lower unit and water came out of the motor oil drain.

Drained it all out and put fresh oil and ran it on muffs to try and get the new oil run through before we try and figure out what to do next.

From what I can find we're looking at possibly a seal underneath the powerhead?

Sorry to say that looks like a blown head gasket, rotted through head, or block. Water in the oil!
Lower unit issue might be a failed seal.
Time to break out the wallet big time...

What year is the motor? One of my 2004’s died in 2015- corrosion ate through the block passages. Later models have more and better anodes, but one of mine died in a way similar to yours.
