I met a guy in Afghanistan who hung a bedsheet on the wall outside of his room to watch movies and play video games with a projector. Worked pretty good.
Our projector is about the size of a package of cigs. Runs for about 2 hours on a charge. Has an SD card slot and will connect to our computer or DVD player. We have tanbark sails, so that was out. I found an old projector screen at Good Will store, took it apart and use that, works GREAT!

Re: Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?

I think its a great question and a fair comparison. We ourselves struggled with the idea before we bought our first boat: buy an RV now and take it easy, or go with the boat where we know its much more worry and probably more expensive.

As the Bumfuzzles themselves have now decided to swallow the anchor in trade for an RV, its the next logical option for us when we decided to do the same. Although we just bought our first boat, we don't live in la-la land and do realize that there will come a day when we're done with it. But like I've said on a previous thread, we'd rather do the sailing thing now while we can, than to live the rest of our lives with the regret that we didn't do it. And when we're done, then will start cruising around with the rest of the RV'ers and join AARP.

I travel to go placees. Sailing is a means to get there and accomodation. So is a camper van /RV.....
Mark' has a good point. A typical RV is very cumbersome and limiting. I lived out of my 4-wheel drive Ford F150 with a camper shell and a roll-out shelf attached to the truck's bed. I have a sleeping platform above the roll-out shelf and all the kitchen gear, folding chairs, and other recreational gear stows on the roll-out or on a rack on top of the shell. My rig is OK in cities, but is powerful, versatile, fast, and nimble in the backcountry where I want to be. I am not confined to RV campsites!

I use the F150 to tow my small boat. Ideally I'd like a live-aboardable sailboat AND my current land-exploration rig.

Currently we have a 30' fifth wheel. I would like to get a 30 - 33' Cape Dory to expand my explorations.
