I would NOT use fully pressurized shore water as a coolant on ANY engine. Too much water pressure could force water into the oil or back flow from the exhaust to the pistons (neither of which is good).
I use a 5 gal. bucket that I tap into the cooling water supply and let the FW pump pull in the water it needs at its own rate. If you want to run more then 5 gals. into the engine then just stick the hose into the bucket with a low enough setting so the 5 gal. bucket does not overflow.
