Further to the heat x for trannie. I believe it should be fresh water cooled in series with the engine hx .Tranny cooler is first in line. Reason? Isolates from salt water corrosion. If raw water pump spits out little rubber bits they don't get caught in small tubes. And if you anchor in an old booming grounds the tiny water borne debris go right thru the big hx and out the exhaust.Been there.
