Temperature Flucuation - Help

I went on my first sail of the season this weekend (before the snow hit) on the C. Bay. When I was coming in I noticed my engine temp was flucuating between 150-170 degrees. The temp would hold steady at around 150 then start to climb, then it would come back to the normal (for this boat) temp of around 150. I have never encountered this before. Any ideas? I have run the engine at the dock a couple of times prior with no noticeable change. Any input is appreciated. Is this a problem?

A couple of things come to mind. A sticking thermostat in the radiator? Or, how about the impellor in the raw water pump?
