Check the mixing elbow, that's the piece where the raw water enters the engine exhaust flow. Usually the exhaust is a rubber hose after the mixing elbow. Mixing elbows have a rough and relatively short life and if they get plugged up, it doesn't matter how clean your heat exchanger is, there will not be sufficient raw water to exchange the heat.
