FWC vs RWC

I am getting ready to look at a boat (late 70''s, original engine-diesel)with raw water cooling and would like advice please.

First, is raw water cooling a very bad choice instead of fresh water?

What should I look for or have a mechanic check out if I wanted to buy the boat?

What is the life expectancy of a RWC engine?

Thanks for any advice.
Mike
