There should be a letter stamped on your key's shaft and your ignition switch. A/B/C/D. Your dealer ought to be able to order you new keys if you tell them which letter you are (or, they might have some in stock).

Call your dealer and give them HIN and I believe they can get you the proper key. My understanding is that there are only 5 different keys for the newer models. Heck I have 3 of them.

In agreement here 100%

No need for a HULL ID # . That will not bring this basic info up

ABC or D is correct

Look around the boat for a spare as well. My '96 had a spare key stapled to the driver's seat bottom. Appeared to be factory.
Otherwise, they're fairly simple ignitions. If I lost my keys I'd try every key I owned 1 may work, but stashing a spare key is best.
I never remove the key unless I leave it slipped overnight and even then, someone experienced in stealing boats or cars would have it started just as quick anyway.

I think those key caps are removable. I had some extras, but sold them a couple of years ago. Just pop them out to make a copy. Magic Eraser can bring thecap back.

I dont think I have that key, but the float I have, and its never been used, basically brand new it's been in the binder for 22 years with the original paperwork...

I'm surprised MC by Design doesn't have a selection of a few key floats... some retro, some new?

It seems to be. I'll make a post in the MBD thread and see what happens...
