Did you see the engine running before taking the boat?
Coolant would indicate a closed cooled boat with a heat exchanger. You'll need to check and flush the heat exchanger as well as replace the impellor.
At some point, check to make sure that the rooted floor isn't ontop of rotted stringers and a rotted transom.
