Architeuthis is on a distinguished road
We like to spent lots of time on the boat, as much as we can, weeks at a time if possible (so far only pulled off a couple months in a row) so we have radios (shortwave, am, fm, vhf ect) computers and a flat screen which is also a TV. We rarely get a signal but we are at a new marina so I'll put up the antenna and see what we get. The flat screen is most often used as a monitor screen so we can watch movies and TV shows downloaded.

We travel internationally and find it a real pain not being able to watch HULU outside the US or other stations inside the US.

The big screen is also good for watching DIY videos and I find that it comes in handy with boat stuff. Captain Ron is often referred to when we have sailing questions. Like why do diesels like their oil? Captn Ron has the answer! Where will things go wrong? Captn Ron has the answer.

Cheech and Chong is always a good reference for easy border crosssings...

Movies and other videos look much better on the larger screen, wouldn't sail without one.
