It would be a shame to take any older pristine Mastercraft into salt water much of the time. My buddy had an '84 that he used in salt water......the rust and corrosion was really bad after only 3-4 years. He did not have closed cooling, but that would not have made any difference with the external engine/trans corrosion.

Maybe keep your '78 for fresh water and find a nice prostar 200 outboard???
