Coleman outboard overheating
You should change your impeller.
It is located at the top of the gearbox, around the vertical engine shaft.
First, disconnect the gear control. Underneath the steering bracket, you'll see a long nut with a counternut. ( Maybe you'll have to shift FWD or BWD to get better access ). Loosen the counternut 1/4 turn and then turn the long nut up ( 2 open box wrenches 10mm ).
Then remove the 4 bolts holding from lower to upper the gearcase ( just above the anti-cavitation plate )
The gearbox should drop down easily.
Then remove the 4 screws of the waterpump ( top of gearcase, around the long vertical shaft ). Lift the waterpupp housing, you'll get the impeller.
To reassemble the waterpump, grease the cup in the housing with PTFE or silicone grease, and while pushing the housing down over the impeller, rotate the shaft clockwise.
Reassemble all the rest in reverse order.
Check and adjust the gear shifting...

Rivets popping out of gunwale
I don't know how big they are, but probably easy enough to replace with a pop-rivet tool ($5-10 for a cheap kit). Else replace with a nut and bolt with the permanent version of lok-tite and/or glue.
It would be wise to find out why it is under strain at that point, but remember these are made of soft plastic and designed so they can stack like garbage cans for shipping (final assembly at store or at home) so it might not be put together quite straight.

My new Coleman SCANOE sank.
Look up the "Bird Of Prey Canoe Stabilizer" on YouTube. For less than $80 a guy made stabilizers for this model of canoe. I'm looking into buying one and found your post. I have read in another area that people were having issues with it taking on water in the back while using a motor. We mostlly row, so at most I was considering a small trolling motor.

I have 2 punctures in my raft. Can I use a
Coghlan's Plastic or Rubber Repair Kit works on air mattresses and raincoats so it could work on your raft. It is available at Canadian tire for about $4. In a pinch you could also use duct tape. It provides a temporary, but waterproof seal.
