When I was selling Ag. equipment we used to run across tractors with air cooled Deutz engines, they sometimes had problems with dust and crop trash clogging the cooling fins etc. I have never heard of an air cooled inboard diesel engine of reasonable size in a boat. The operating conditions are much cleaner there I wonder if there are some out there and how they have done. They would need a good supply of fresh air.
