    Glad to see this turned out well. I share your 'don't sell skis to neighbors' policy.

    There's a nipple coming off the first water box with a cooling hose attached. That nipple has a very small hole that can get clogged and cause overheating. Check that if you haven't already done so. ...

    When you aligned the motor, did you leave out the rubber donut on the PTO? You can't really get proper shimming with the donut in place.

    Should be reading 14+ at higher RPM. Make sure the plug is fully inserted (clicked) into the voltage regulator. If it is, then try swapping out the voltage regulator for a known good unit.

    Minimum compression is 164psi with no more than 14psi between cylinders. It's possible your mechanics gauge is reading low, since the compression is even? If the boat is doing 8k RPM and ~85kph then...
