2003 Volvo Penta 5.7L engine

The motor has 102 hours. It was running fine when suddenly the speedometer quit working & the engine started stalling. I put the engine in neutral & it idled fine but when I try to go forward again it did ok at very low speed but stalled again every time I tried to accelerate. All the other gauges worked fine. I noticed the engine temperature was slightly over 200 degrees.

I was able to ease back to the docks & the speedometer started recording slightly above 10 mph but when I would try to accelerate again, it stalled.
I change the fuel filter every season and I have replaced the spark plugs. The battery is fairly new & charged.
Any ideas?
