Flat screen TV/DVD
I would like to mount as large a TV as possible on the forward salon bulkhead through-bolted to the head side of the bulkhead. Then a mast mounted antenna and DVD either in the TV or preferrably seperately mounted in the Nav stqtion. Has anyone done this? and any suggestions re Max weight.
Any and all thoughts suggestions and experiences will be greatly appreciated.

I mounted a 32" flat screen in the same place using galvanized carriage bolts, 3/8" or 7/16" can't remember. Worked great, have many hours and and some heavy seas with it. This Panasonic model removes quicky and there have been a few times in the gulf that I have just grabbed it real quick and layed on a cushion just to be safe!

I cut and pasted the following from the catalina site - hope that's legal.
Have you had any issues with viewability at this location?
thank you.

Sounds like you would not reccomend this location.
?How large is your screen? I wonder if a large enough screen would overcome the location limitations??
Or where would you recomend????
Thank you.

I put a swivel mount on the bulkhead of my 27' Pearson so i can move it around and see it from many places. i just use a bungy to secure it when sailing.

Second one of the day like that.
Saw it somewhere else about an hour ago.
The mods will clean it up soon.

Thats 55 so far in under an hour, at this rate he'll have the dog by the tail in no time.

Looks like he has been removed,
and I was just about to give him some Pos Rep for catching the dog.

Actually I was going to give him a positive rep for well thought out responses, even if they looked the same for every post he did. :D Looks like CD or Cam got him.

There is an article on the C36 website about mouting a flat screen to the bulkhead. In addtion to bolting the TV up, the owner fabricated a frame around the TV to provide a little extra support and give a finished look.

It looked very nice in the photos.
