I just purchase a 1998 Outrage 17, who sells aftermarket or OEM options, like Bimini top, rear bait board/rod holders and other parts for this particular boat...

For the bimini top, and other canvas, Mills Canvas is worth a look.

I am confused. Do you want to buy OEM parts or do you want to buy aftermarket parts? OEM parts are sold by Boston Whaler. Aftermarket parts are sold by everyone else.

I generally try to buy OEM when the Whaler parts are unique or of better quality. On the other hand, there are many situations in which OEM just doesn't make sense.
Here are a few examples for contrast:
Outrage windshield replacement: $285 from local Whaler dealer, with seven days to deliver; Or have one fabricated locally from the same material, identical in every respect, for $100 and install it in two days.
There are dozens of similar contrasts. I suggest you consider your options piece by piece. Ask about the specific item you want/need and you'll get a better response here.
