You could go with a Sierra brand one, but I would go with Merc.
I would not use an automotive recirc pump. The internals on auto ones are designed knowing it will have AF and they don't have SS internals.

Using a marine pump is really critical if you don't have closed cooling. The seals are different and the automotive pumps need AF to lubricate them. I you have seawater cooling, you better make sure you bilge pump is working, because you will need it. I've burned out a couple of water pumps on cars running straight water before.
