Does anybody know why the fresh water coolant would leak out out the expansion cap after motoring for about 5 minutes and empty the contents into the bilge. Smoke also coming out of air intake

It sounds very much like either a cylinder head gasket gone or cracked cylinder head

It's possibly your heat exchanger leaking. It should be relatively easy to trace with the engine ticking over.
