Yup.................the later ones (pictured below) had the "air trap"......(the next design concept to be "invented" in the near future)......on the OUTSIDE of the hull.

What is an "air trap" you ask..........? Wait a few years...it'll be back.

I remember both of those boats...but I don't think I was at that race...... In 1969, I was transitioning from twin engine vees to tunnels.....with the same results pictured...... Most of the Nationals I attended were in Eufaula, Al, Lake George , NY or Dayton, Ohio.

It is truly amazing what Mr. Switzer accomplished. The boats...uglier than a pile of doggy doo doo, but LIGHT years ahead of their time. Looking forward to seeing T2x's.
