Looks like an open loop - salt water engine that froze up & cracked... due to not draining properly from all the corrosion in the block

So can you confirm it's open loop?
If so, how many hours on open loop?

I run openloop on my ski and still looks new in the coolant passages after 70hrs. However, I ride mostly fresh water with the occasional salt water run followed by a thorough flushing.

Yes it's open loop & have about 50 hrs on it that way with about 220 ttl. The motor is from my 04 RXP. It has had a pretty hard life. Long time ago a valve broke and bounced around then a timing chain snapped plus 2 good heat ups when hoses blew. Got all the goodies with a ported head, lightened / knife edged counter balancer and crank, Carrilo rods, RR Cam & ET 68/140 charger. really was running strong!!!! I do all the work my self so labour is no biggy.
Do you guys think that having an open loop with the ski running sooooo fast that too much pressure built up in the block and could of contributed to that? Routed it so that there is a Y on the input with 1 side to block and other to intercooler then exhaust.
