Hello, My name is John and I currently own a 2001 406 with twin 454 cid 380 HP mpi. My lovely wife and I keep our yacht on Lake Texoma which is a very large lake between Okla and TX so this yacht is not overkill for the fresh waters. Some of the best sand beaches, yes beaches, you can play on. I have been boating since 1962 starting with Dad and family and then continuing as teenagers in the early 70's with a joint own 16ft with brother Sam. After growing up and becoming carreer oriented I have owned 4 boats starting with a 18ft open bow, 26.5 Bayliner Cierra, 32ft Cruisers and finally my Carver. I told my wife when we purchased this boat it would be the last but I might have spoken too soon. I perform all repairs myself except for the ones that require a haul out so I am very experienced in Electro/Mechanical theory as I do this function as a professional. It is funny how your status changes with the color of your hair. When I was younger my friends call me a Cheap (I will leave the rest out) then I became Frugal and look at me know, I am a Cost Engineer. Love it.... I will contribute to this website in a professional manner attempting to give other members the best information I have BASED on experience. I will try not to "chime in" just because but I am human. A man expecially (The girls will love that statement). I am glad to be aboard on MY FIRST FORUM so while you laugh at me just remember, I am on the other side of this monitor just crying away. Have a great day folks. John
