Default Any Key West 176 DC Owners?

I've pretty much decided to pull the trigger on a 2006 Key West 176 DC with 115 e-tec but I can't find a lot of info from current/past owners. I'm looking for input on this particular boat, not Key West in general....theres plenty of info on that company.
I know this is a new model (2006) for KW but just like to here form any current or past owners of this model. Both good or bad. I've done a search on the forum and can only find 2 threads on this model boat, both with little feedback. Maybe someone would like to put in there 2 cents... Any input would be greatful. Thanks.

I own a 176 CC with a 140 Johnsuzuki. It is a great 17' boat. The 25" shaft and deep freeboard makes it great for the lakes. I have not used it in salt water. I looked at the DC when I visied the plant in Rigeville, SC. I have had good experience with Key West. I consider it a well made, solid boat.

As you mentioned the 176DC is a new model so I doubt you will find much feed back. I saw it at the shop and it looks pretty nice. I may have gone with it if it had been out when I purchased my 186DC. 176 would have been easier to get in and of the garage etc. Plus 176 with 115 should be just fine. I have the 150 on my 186 and it is a little a$$ heavy, but gets up and goes trim tabs made a huge difference. E-Tec should be good since it is lighter than the 4-strokes.
