86’ Merc Mariner 75 HP possible seize

While out and about yesterday, the motor was running great at 30 mph as usual. All of a sudden the motor started making a raw running sound. I immediately turned off the engine to inspect. After looking over it, I tried turning it back over. It wants to crank but it seems stuck/seized. It hasn’t been stripped down and rebuilt to my knowledge over the years but planned to this winter. Unfortunate but I was wondering if there would be anybody out there that may have some advice or similar experiences. Thank you in advance

Pull the spark plugs than see if it cranks over.  Blown head gasket or other things could cause cylinder(s) to fill with water and cause               " hydraulic lock".
