Apparently they do both . . . either a line off the raw water system to the oil reservoir or, in the larger Naiads, a dedicated pump. Any of the systems can be adapted to "external" coolers. As for the need for cooling, my manual says that for every 18 degrees F above 120, the oil life is shortened by half.
