Yup, the thermostat regulates flow going into your radiator, with it gone, your coolant doesn't have enough time inside your engine to take much heat with it. Car designers purposefully make water pump flow more than they need to and use the thermostat to regulate the flow.

Water around the radiator might only be that you overheated and boiled the coolant out of it.

Try putting in a thermostat and see how it goes.
