Maybe that "y" is used only on the straight sides and just plain "u" is used on the curved fore & aft?

Am I correct ?
The "Y" front and rear floor channels, were not used until the later 1970's models.

Correction. The "Y" shaped channel started in 1972.

Ah yes, the memory. Like the ripples in the water.

Yes - the U orC whichever you want to call it is for the front and rear (fore and aft) the Y is for the straight sides. It seems the Y stops about 1 foot of the U in the rear part of the AS,
