Possible water in cylinders?

I have a late model A4 in a 78 Cat 30 that recently developed an exhaust leak in the hot pipe section just above the water lift muffler. This caused exhaust and water to leak into the engine compartment and then to the bilge. I am away from my home slip, so to get back I rigged a patch job and made sure to run the blower and bilge pump on my trip back home.

This solution worked fine, but this morning I tried to start the engine and it just turns over and over without catching at all. The engine has always started nicely for me in the past so something is wrong now. I wonder if I managed to get water in the cylinders from the water not draining out of the muffler? How can I check the situation?
