With marina cable, you bet!

Our marina provides free cable so we do use it evenings we are in the slip. Get to watch a movie, weather, news. It is a Sharp Aquaos (sp?) flat screen that is mounted on an expanding arm so you can fold it flat on the bulkhead or pull out and swivel for better viewing. Bungie it back when sailing. We also can run it on battery and up until next week on our antenna that we ran up on a halyard in an anchorage if we needed to watch something rather than read. We bought it before the HD was reasonable so we are in the "digital dilemma". We have a hard time keeping enough books aboard as we also enjoy reading but have you noticed how expense they are getting???? Sure you can swap in some locales and if you are able to get what you have a hankering for at the library and you plan to be back ashore to return but even paperbacks are getting to be pretty pricey. I have become an avid read it and return it at the airport...you get 50% back on your price paid...
