1. If you cranked over the engine for an extended time trying to start it, you may have filled the muffler with water, which can back up into the engine. Since you got the engine running, which would blow the water out of the muffler, I don't think this is the problem.
2. The exhaust "riser" or "elbow" may have rusted out. If so, the water injected into the riser could find its way back into the engine.
3. If your exhaust pipe outlet was underwater, and there is no anti-siphon loop or device in the exhaust pipe (hose)water may be running into the exhaust outlet and thence into the engine.
