I'm glad you found the problem and resolved it.

You might consider pulling your heat exchanger core and cleaning it at some point. You can get a chemical cleaner or a radiator shop can dip it for you. It's usually not a very difficult job. Most marine diesel engine books will show you the steps. I like this one..

It can certainly wait until the end of the season.
