cooling a 540

Ran the boat on sundsy at noon. The motor temp wants to stay at 200 if run for any time. So what options can be added to help cool the temp. I thought of adding another oil cooler for more capacity. My thoughts are how does a cowling work. It a 540 300+hp dry sump.

Re: panthers????

THERE ARE NO PANTHERS NORTH OF THE GLADS.
If there were most public land would be shut down from hunting or hiking, they would have to because it is an endagered species. So as stated there are no wild cats north of the glads.
