Take it apart you will need a new sleeve and piston most likely unless you also got the crank and connecting rod then you might as well buy a new engine off E-bay

How salvagable it is will depend on how bad it's locked up. I had a Nova Rossi .21 that warped the sleeve so bad that it wouldn't come out of the case.
Usually you'll start frying glow plugs or hear it running lean before they go.

Sounds like it's this boat:

Not sure you'll be easily able to find parts for that engine.

You noted that you ran 20% nitro. Am I wrong to assume that you ran RC car fuel? If so, the oil content is too low for running in boats.
In looking at the HOR Racing site I didn't see a direct replacement (the oddball .25) as all I saw was the Go .21 which would really wake the boat up!
