I have seen a line guide for diameters and lengths online that seems to be for newer boats. Is there a similar guide for older boats such as a 1984 model? My assembly manual doesn't show anything about lengths or diameters when it comes to lines, unless I am missing something.

Diameters, in case of Main and Jib sheets, will be smaller.
Choice for new will be a matter of your preference.
Smaller diameters run faster, larger diameter may be easier on the hands (if you're in the habit of sawing the sheets in and out).

Lengths, if not identical, are very close and usable for sheets.

Since this a one-design boat, most if not all the rest of the line lengths are right for a 1969 through 2017 Hobie 16
