I'm new to this big screen TV thing. No matter how big the screen is, the content is mostly crap. We have one because we can, we have the room, and watching movies is cool. We never have to go to a movie theater again.
When we lived aboard, I think our TV was 9 or 12 inches, it really was a minor priority for us. We had no hot water for years, but we never even thought about it. Want to wash up, put the kettle on, no big deal, showers up the dock.
Today, if I lived aboard, I'd be happy with a good sized laptop screen and no TV. I read books on my iphone, which is a good space and weight saver.
We're in our 60s now and like comfort and warmth, and a little gardening as well. I would encourage people to forget about buying houses and put their money into a boat and move onto the water while they are still fairly young. Life will change and when you move ashore eventually you won't be looking back wishing you had spent more time sailing.
