Problem on my way to Portland

There is a lot of weed in the water here in Maine and about an hour outside of Rockland, steam started appearing in my exhaust so I checked the temperature of my exhaust elbow. I usually check it while I am motoring and normally it is in the high 70's but when I checked it with my thermometer gun it was 97 degrees. So I stopped the engine and proceeded to take apart my raw water filter and after a while, one of the lobster fishermen came over to see if I was okay.
I showed him my raw water strainer.
It was full of weed and needed clearing. I asked him if he had any lobsters for sale.
He kindly gave me 3 of them that I plan on eating tonight.
