Default Where do we go to get parts now that Olymic Boats has gone bankrupt?

We have a 2005 Maxum 1800 SR3. It has been in our garage of almost two years due to vehicle problems and the economy. We finally are out of the woods and are planning to head for the lake in a few weeks. Before we do, we want to do an oil change and probably replace the impeller. Our boat only has 46 hours on it but it has been in storage for so long we know we need to take some action to prevent problems. We always went to Olympic Boats for our Maxum needs and were surprised to learn they no longer exist. Question is what do us Maxum owners do now? We live in the Monterey Bay area of California and usually go to Lake Nacimiento in Southern Monterey County. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also...........where is the impeller located on a 4.3 liter V6 Mercruiser motor.

Just to add, if all you need is regular maintenance issues addressed then any place that services Mercruiser engines and out drives can perform the services you need. Since Merc is the largest supplier of I/O's you'd be hard pressed to NOT find a shop that works on them.
