The damage that can result from overheating an engine would be piston seizure. Without the cooling water circulating around the outsides of the cylinders to dissipate the heat from combustion, the piston temperature rises higher and higher. As the piston(s) get hotter, they expand. Being aluminum, they expand more than the liner of the cylinder does, and eventually expand to a size bigger than the cylinder. That is when the seizure happens.
At this point, you need to do a compression test on all 4 cylinders. You should have at least 150 psi on each cylinder. Anything lower than that is indicative of a problem.

1995 Yamaha Waverunner III dies won't run


Check cylinder compressions, this ski will overheat if one side is low. Thus is step one, if ok and within 10% of each other, verify the exhaust isn't clogged with sand from "beaching" third verify the crank seals are not leaning the Mix causing an overheat. Obviously check the impeller housing to exhaust line isnt clogged, disconnecting the thermal sensor is asking for a top end rebuild which is about 500.00 they are designed to reduce revs and alternate spark to the cylinders once 200 degrees is reached.
