Over heating Diesel

I have a friend who is cruising and recently experienced some overheating issues with his Perkins 4-108 while heading from Sawyer Key to Key West. He indicated he'd checked the impeller, the raw water strainer, exhaust and even cleaned his heat exchanger. The problem seemed to go away, but he was curious as to what else he could have checked. I indicated I would post his question, so thanks to anyone that can provide some insight. He also said that he had on a couple of occassions found crab pot lines tanled around his keel and prop.
