Your locale certainly makes things a lot more challenging, but its still  tough to beat the support network out of this group at any level.  These truly are fantastic boats that will pretty much run forever with proper care and a few spare parts.  On that note, the alternator and water pump are the only two things I've had to replace more than once.  There are good marine replacement alternators available now so that one's easy, but the pumps are much harder to find and significantly more expensive.  I've taken to removing the hose to let it dry out and spraying a light film of oil in mine in an effort to extend its life.  I don't know if it really helps any, but figure it can't hurt.  Good luck!

The other thing I've had good luck with are the standard cover supports.
You can buy kits that include slats of wood roughly 2" (51 cm for you EU
folks) wide, mounts to fix them to each side of the boat and an adjustable
spring-loaded cleat to adjust the width of the slats.  I've been using them
for 20+ years and it literally takes me less than a minute to fix both slats
on the boat and tie them into position (so they don't tilt for or aft).
Here's a link to one buying option, but they're available pretty much
everywhere:

Another alternative:

Just order up a semi-custom-fitted cover fitted for generic TRI-HULLS:

of 1" PVC to keep a convex upward bow of the cover so water runs off. The
support has 4 legs and cross members to give it stability and it has side
arms to support. I bought 8 foot long fiberglass lightweight corrugated
roofing panels that are approx. 3 ft wide to use as a support. It needs to
be easy to remove so you spend your time on the boat and not messing with
its cover. You can have stuff made if you got the money and I have done that
but the covers are good for maybe 5 years out in the elements. The Nielsen
(?sp) people are no longer in business and they made a mooring cover that
was quite nice but they are canvas and perish easily. They also originally
made the tops and side curtains and let that go. A shame but maybe they will
get it back !
 together again. I can send pictures of the cover and apparatus if you think
you might want to do that. You might get some canvas from a sail shop or a
trucking company. TK

from $300 to $1400.  Ouch!  May as well be buying obsolete OMC parts!  ;)
