TV installation

I picked up a 32" LED today for my office. I didn't realize it until after I unboxed that it only weighs 16.5 lbs!
Anyway, I've been wanting to install a TV this size on my boat, just to the right of the companionway. I don't want to through-bolt it, however. With the weight on this TV I thought I might actually have a shot at that.
Any suggestions how I might be able to do this?

Re: TV installation

Hmmm... Not sure. We use a t-bolted wall mount. Remember when sailing or pounding in waves, the forces on that mount will be more than the 16 lbs of what it registers at the dock. I would t-bolt if i could.

Re: TV installation

So, I guess you ended up buying a boat. You never came back on your other post to say what you were doing.

Consider this Peerless articulating mount. We have our 32 inch HD/DVD TV on it. Flat against the wall when not in use. Allows the TV to be angled when sitting on the setee.

Re: TV installation

We used a "VideoSecu LCD Monitor TV Flat Panel Wall Mount VESA 75/100 - Ultra Thin Mount Bracket" - basically two flat plates with edges that curve around each other - so the TV would rest as close as possible to the wall, given that it's above a settee where someone usually sits to eat at the table. Non-articulating, but very very solid.

So close to the wall that I had to look for right-angle HDMI, ,RCA, and F-type connectors, and use a flex shaft screwdriver to fasten the locking screws. But the TV is definitely out of the way, and solid. Lag screws into the bulkhead.

Apparently the fellow who stole the first TV didn't need a flex shaft to remove the retaining screws, but he did give up on removing the wall side of the bracket. But he was kind enough to drop a credit card receipt with his name on it in the cockpit, and he and his "associates" have since reimbursed the TV and damage. Still wondering how he got it off with a straight screwdriver though.

Re: TV installation

If not through-bolted then "glued". With a wall bracket and epoxy or adhesive that is thoroughly allowed to cure and tested for hold before the TV set is added to the bracket.

Who knew, VHB tape doesn't bond to treated granite...among other things.

Re: TV installation

Well what I ended up doing was through bolting. My main concern was I originally wanted to mount the TV so that it would be through bolted on an exterior bulkhead, and was worried about creating a point at which water would enter. After reconsidering I mounted on an interior bulkhead & just went ahead and through bolted. Was pretty easy& turned out well.

I just used a regular wall mount I got off amazon. Since the TV was only 1.5" thick, and only weighs 16lbs, I just opted for a mount that was extremely thin & reasonably priced. This way it fits behind the table which folds back against the wall, and can be pulled off quickly and stowed when traveling.

Also, yes I ended up purchasing the Cal 34 I mentioned in the other post.


With table up.


With table down.


Handy work on the reverse side.

We use the same one for our 23" tv. It's a nice mount. I mounted it into a teak/plywood partial bulkhead using heavy screws. It's nice to be able to pull it out when in use or lay it flat when not. We use a strap to keep it in stowage place when sailing.
