Default Key West 176CC

I recently purchased a Key West 176 CC. It has a significant Port List while running on plane. No amount of trimming will eliminate the list?

If anyone has had similar issues with the Key West Products let me know please. If you know the remedy I would like to know what it is and is this a common thing ??

Is there a Key West forum??

I'm fairly ignorant on this but any chance the hull is holding water on one side or your fishing buddy is a FF?

I recently purchased the same boat. 2012 with 140 Suzuki. I have the same problem when running at low speeds with the motor trimmed down. Once I get to cruising speed with the motor trimmed out it runs level. I find it alot less noticeable when I have someone else with me standing on my right side.

It is my understanding the folks who bought the company a few years back are more than glad to assist owners. Give them a call.

Is there a swim platform on the pod side? My 175 scout has one and I have the same issue although the list isn't that notable. I think the platform digs in the water a bit causing this because when I trim the motor up, the list goes away. I have no water in hull.
