    Coolant in oil, need help!

    Ok I noticed coolant was a little low, so I added some and went out for a ride. When I came back from the ride I noticed smoke coming from the compartment. My Riva oil vent breather was full, and it must have gushed out alot of oil on the hot motor creating the smoke.Alot of oil was in the hull below motor. I also noticed the coolant was completely gone.

    Does this sound like a blown head gasket, which caused the coolant to leak into the motor. mixing the coolant with oil caused it to overflow, which forced it out the breather? How can I check where the coolant came from? compression test?
    Thanks in advance.
    Jim
