Westerbeke w60 cooling problem

Help! I have been working on my overheating problem and I cannot fix it. Here are the things I have done:
Changed impeller
Removed closed water pump and inspected- no issues
Removed and inspected raw water pump- no issues
Remove all coolant and flush system- installed new coolant
Installed new thermostat
There is great volume of water coming out of exhaust
Removed heat exchanger cap to inspect tubes-no visible issues
When I run the motor it gradually climbs to over 200degrees. There is about a 2-4 degree difference between raw water in and out telling me that not enough heat is being drawn out of the heat exchanger. Any help would be greatly appreciated
