    I have a 2004 240 Sundancer that I currently have moored on fresh water. I have been wanting to move it over to salt water soon and am wondering what the best options are to save my engine. Should I add a Neutra-Salt system? Convert to closed cooling? Or add a flush kit? Are there other options that I missed?

    Full closed cooling will protect your engine the most. With that only your risers and the heat exchangers are exposed to saltwater. Since you're engine has never been exposed to salt water, conversion should be possible. Adding flush out and salt away are extra protection.

    I have a 240SD in salt water. I installed full closed cooling on it and flush the raw water side after every trip.
