It took me 3 months to stop calling lines ropes, and rigging cables.
not sure how long until I stop saying back, wall, ceiling, and stop calling our genoa a jib.

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

Are you going to gimbal it on the wall or just hang it from the ceiling? Bet if you mounted it on a pedestal in the middle of the room and spun it at about 60 hertz it could be viewed from all seats.Ha, maybe I'm on to something here.

It will just be screwed to the bulkhead like I would do if home.
not like my last huge HDTV.

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

For me, watching movies is for when we're in a marina, not when anchoring or cruising. Since it's our home, I want a chance to watch movies on a quality screen occasionally.

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

"We are planning about a 40-55" TV for our salon wall."

The only time there are walls on a boat, is when the boat has been cut up and used as a planter in front of a restaurant. Says so right in Chapman's.

3D may be the new Betamax and 4K prices may plummet, even if 4K gets adopted for anything. You won't find it over the air--and there's lots of good HD tv over the air--and you won't find it on BluRay either. Which leaves you some expensive cable packages if you can find them, doesn't it?

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

My only recommendation; try to avoid cutting into the bulkhead with this kind of job. Mounting a TV on the bulkhead is fine, mounting one in the bulkhead not so much.

I've seen a lot of boats where tvs are recessed into bulkheads, making reversal of the modification difficult.

This is probably less relevant these days because new LEDs are so skinny anyway, recessing one into a bulkhead would make little difference.

4K will come to blueray. they can do 4 layer disks. 100gb is enough for about 4 hours of 4K if I remember correctly. ( depends on compression.) 3d may go away again.

Right, they are 10MM. the wall mount may turn out thickest, But I am thinking of screwing it in from the other side of the WALL.

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

This is the wallmount (bulkheadmount?) that I'm using:
Amazon.com: VideoSecu Low Profile Ultra Slim 1 Amazon.com: VideoSecu Low Profile Ultra Slim 1" profile TV Wall Mount for most 27"-47" LCD LED Plasma TV, Some up to 55" Flat Panel Screen Display with VESA 100x100 to 400x400 1RX: Electronics



The front edge of the TV is 2 7/8 inches from the bulkhead, exactly matching the Vizio speaker bar. We can sit comfortably in the salon seat without touching the back of our head on the TV.
