Greg, Don't forget the oil cooler. My wife's boat had the same problem (chernobel syndrome). I cleaned out the heat exchanger, checked the thermostat, looked for obstructions in the inlet and strainer, did all the normal things, but it wasn't till I stood on my head and got a good close look at the port side of the engine that I realized there is an oil cooler down there. A quick acid dip for the oil cleaner, and the problem was solved.
