I have SM 243, she has a 24V 60 L/H Desallator. I'm not aboard now, but it sounds like that's what you have. Two 20" membranes?

I'm unsure of which model Dessalator is installed on my boat. I've attached a photo.. The info on the label on the motor reads:
It appears this is a 24V-only unit. Is this typical? I haven't had luck searching the mailing list archives for more info. I think there is something wrong with Yahoo right now.. Can anyone identify this model?
This unit has 13 hours on it. That is not a typo. The previous owner said he used it a couple times when he first got the boat and then never again. I do not know if it was pickled at that time, nor if it has been flushed in the interim. Can anyone offer advice on what I should do before I try turning it on? I know I'll need to replace the membranes before I use it, but I just want to see if everything else works or if it needs a more serious overhaul.
