Default How to use a water cooled brushless motor?

Dear seniors and friends,
I have never used a water cooled brushless motor before.
For our boat my friend just suggest me to use the following brushless motor..((
Turnigy AquaStar 2842-2800KV Water Cooled Brushless Outrunner Motor from hobbyking))<sorry that i cannot post URLs i am new here>
I have no idea how to mount the motor, how to use watercooled system.
Can it be used underwater?
It said it has an air cooling too.
Can you guys explain me about this,please?
Thanks a lot

What boat is it?

The motor should mount the same way as the old, assuming its not a custom or toy grade.

Then if your current motor is water cooled just hook the hoses to the new motor. If not you could get a water cooler system. Its just a small pickup on the back of the boat, some hosing (i used nitro fuel line) around the motor and out the side of the hull. You can also get a water cooled esc or a block to cool your current ESC, and just T off the main hose
