I for one would appreciate that Michael. :-)
The top bows and sockets/irons that came with my '18 might be correct but I'd like to be sure.
Thanks much!

Mike,thanks for posting those measurements. I didn't have a front bow to measure.

Curses, foiled again! On my '18 Runabout anyway.
I'm glad you brought this up.
It forced me to study the catalogs and the few top parts I have and they're next older top bows/irons.
I got me an edumacation today and it's starting to make more sense. That's a good thing. :-)
Thanks Michael!
