Need more help with 96 Bravada problem/s

Not sure what is related to what so I will give you all the issues and with luck someone can tell me the way to correct this.

A few months ago I notice when I started my truck (96 bravada) the bat. light would flicker at first and the headlights and dash lights would blink and the faster the motor ran the faster they would blink. As it warmed up this stopped. I took it in and had them check the alternator/regulator and battery and they said that all were fine.?? Then a few weeks ago I was coming home from work and the check gages light came on and I noticed the truck was hot. Then all of a sudden the temp dropped to normal. Then is it went back up again to red line but before I cold pull over it dropped back to normal??? It did this three times then was fine. I checked and the antifreeze level was fine. about a week ago I was bringing my boat back home and the radiator blew in the driveway. I replaced it and the truck seemed fine for about a week. Took the boat out the other morning and the temp did the same thing again. Went up "fast" to the red line then dropped "fast" to normal and did this three or four times. When we pulled the boat out about 6 hours later, it seemed fine again. What would cause this for the temp to go up and down like that, ANY help would be great because I don't have a lot of money to spend trying to figure this one out one part at a time. Thanks
