Could be the thermostats or the poppet needs service. http://www.boats.net/parts/search/Merc2/Mercury/250%20PRO%20XS%20%283.0L%20DFI%29/1B426561%20THRU%201B752546/Exhaust%20Plate/parts.html

Thermostats catch all kinds of junk and will corrode up as will any metal (dissimilar metal corrosion) Pull it/them out and clean them and check for proper operation. The poppet valve works off pressure as well, so do not rule out. A couple years ago I was dealing with bouncing water pressure that turned out to be a bad gasket between the mount halves.
