"Hot water?" Not sure what you mean there. You can take the battery in to be tested under load, for voltage and cranking amps. The only thing that affects the starter is the starter circuit. (google your make/models starter circuit for a diagram or consult a repair manual). If you shorted the starter you may have damaged the solenoid or starter windings. You should also do a voltage drop test on both battery cables to make sure the arcing didn't damage the connection between battery and starter.
