An additional advantage ofthe ISOTEMP is that it can be mounted in various ways even to a bulkhead.
I think you are missing my point. The max raw water cooling water should be around 165 F and fresh water systems commonly run around 190 F. So there is a lot more heat available in a fresh water system.

The raw water heat will work fine on a long motor, but will require a substantial run time if you are thinking about running the engine for a bit to heat up some water.

As far as the ISOTEMP goes they are great units, I wish there was one in my boat.
