We have bought advertising space on SailNet.com as well space in the SailNet Newsletter. I just happen to think this is a great product and would like to inform other of its benefits.


Silingdog & Seabreeze_97:
This LCD is the first to feature an anodized aluminum encasing (the same material as a sailing boat). It has a “no holes” ventilation design that guards against the infection of water, oil and dust. And with its anti-reflective tamper-resistant glass it has IP56 weather-resistant approval. I challenge you to find another flat panel LCD that has all these features.

Ronbo1:
Right now they only have a 42” available but they should be available in a variety of sizes in time.

Sailingdog:
I assure you I am so much more than just a hideous spammer.

CharlieCobra:
I’m sorry but the blonde is not for sale.

Sailingdog:
And the generator powering the LCD was a bit much so we cropped it out of the ad.

If you should have any other questions or comments I would be more than happy to address them all.

I have two swivel mount LCD TVs on my boat that run off of DC. One even plays DVDs. They were cheap off-brands off of eBay, and have been working great in our boat for over a year. They are not weatherproofed, either, but their sexy plastic cases look fine.

I am a 5'11" blonde former model, so you must believe whatever I say because I am a hot chick. If your boat isn't already "weatherized", you need to spend the $$$ on that (boat structural integrity issues outweigh TV's entertainment value) and buy a cheap off-brand LCD TV somewhere else (they are all pretty much made in the same few factories, and have different stickers slapped on.) If you want a 42" LCD TV for your cockpit, however, this may be right for you! Don't forget the solar panels, windgen, and genset it will require to run this... Hey, this is not even an HD ready TV! I could buy a better TV at this price at a bigger size for my house!

No offense to the spam, Kristen, but as a sailor, I use my boat TVs primarily to check the weather while at anchor and lull me to sleep to Telemundo. I already work in electronics, and can easily order a "weatherproofed" TV of better quality from Korea than one pre-fabbed POC Sanyo from China (Korean is actually better, believe it or not!) All it is a bunch of resin-coated boards in a resin-coated case.
