Keep an eye on the temp gauge, if it rises check for water in the exhaust. If the flow is less than it should be I would check the strainer first as it both easier and faster than checking the impeller.

If it is a straight run or close to it from the seacock to the strainer either a smaller hose or a rod of some kind can be used.
