The water pump for a '92 Corvette will be the same as the one on your boat. You can rebuild your pump, but it doesn't cost much more to get a pump at the part store.

Here is a thread on LT-1 cooling:

You might check and see if your head steam vents have been moved to the front. Also, does your boat have a heater? You can buy a water pump with a heater port on the front that will provide hotter water.

If you buy the automotive pump it will have an output and input for the heater. You will have to buy a short piece of heater hose and clamps to join the two together. That's what I did. It was a pretty straight forward job. No real problems to deal with. While you're in there you might as well replace the 165 degree thermostat as well. If you buy an automotive one you'll have to drill a bypass hole in it. I couldn't get the marine version in time, so that's what I did. You're probably better off to buy the marine version if you can get a hold of one. Also, if your boat is a 96 don't you need a 96 Corvette pump?
