Air was trapped all the way to the transom.
The tunnel had a constant angle from the pickle fork to 6 ft from the transom and was then flat.
Left hand sponson has 45 degree chamfer on inside, there was a dropped section to take the gear box giving a very shallow shaft angle.
Motor/driveline and driver were offset to the left approx 6/8 inches to make for better cornering ?
