(This reference sheet last updated on August 01, 2003.)
These specifications are for all original Com-Pac 16 models, starting in 1974 with hull #1 and continuing to until 1984 with hull #2201. The original Com-Pac 16 does not have a bowsprit, which is probably the most reliable way to differentiate them from the later models.Basic Dimensions

According to Gerry Hutchins, the original CP16 MK1 mainsail is 72 sq ft and the original MK2/3 mainsail is 65 sq ft. In terms of reef point placement, I would think that the 10% difference in sail area between the two would make for a different optimal placement. Below is the info Gerry sent when I asked Hutchins about rig dimensions:
