Battery boiled itself dry. One cell might have shorted, the others cooked out. You can confirm this by looking at electrolyte level- If all but one are empty, the one still with fluid probably shorted.

You got away lucky. I investigated one boat that blew open the hull to deck joint from hydrogen explosion.

Also, there is acid all over that area, you need to rinse it off. You also probably ruined some laundry, too.
