Bruce, You should be able to get parts for the engine as there are a lot of used engines (automotive) that were used in these applications. You can check with various marine shops and places to see what used parts might be available. The internet is a good place to look for parts on marine web sites. Any parts you cannot get can always be custom made in a shop if necessary.

  I have a OMC 17" Deluxe Tri-Hull boat built in 1964/65 which is in extremely good condition. My father bought it
  in 1965 as a family boat for water skiing. We used it two weeks a year. Four years ago we completely rebuilt
  the engine, repainted the boat, installed new interior. Boat has about 75 hours on it since rebuild. Boat is completey
  soundand original. I am interested in coresponding with any one who has a similar boat and and has knowledge as to
  where to get parts for these boats. I am interested in knowing if there are any stern drive parts or drive units available
  for these boats. The boat runs fine but I am affraid that if anything goes wrong, I won't be able to find parts. Thanks
