The Tilt changed in 68. So your 68 takes the later one.

Could not find anything on the canvas.

Whoops, it changed in 68. I edited the previous post.

I think the answer to the canvas question would be to make or buy the hoops and bows, and measure/make the canvas to fit. It would be good to get to know a person who makes canvas(or similar) boat covers, biminis, etc. for some tips/techniques and slide him a bit of $$ for his help in your quest.

Thanks for clearing that up. By the looks of things they just changed in length, not width, so the bow length would be the only difference.
