I would pull the head on that side. I'm guessing the water in the induction system got into the cylinder. Maybe some rust damage on the wall. If there is a ring problem it will be easy to see looking at the cylinder. If its good, its easy to check the valves and possibly reseat them. Blowby in quantity is never good. But if it were mine, I would take it for a 10 mile ride before I took anything complicated apart. Then check the compression. Valves tend to seat themselves given a chance. Rings, not so much...You might get lucky!
