No idea, however the thermostat opens at about 143 degrees so it would be slightly higher than that... about 150 or so.

And yes, the heat sensors are very touchy, registering actual air heat. Some engines have a actual screw in cavity on the head for the sensor, however I retired in 1991 and you'll need to get advice on that area from someone else. Try the fellow friends on the forum at MarineEngine.com .
