When not out cruising or doing overnighters on the hook (which is typically every weekend), we use our boat as a second home while at the marina. In this situation we, like most boaters, are creatures of habit. The mid-week home routine is usually repeated onboard. With us, that usually involves reading after talking about the day's events, and sharing a couple glasses of wine.
However, upon coming home or to the boat from the office, we also like to catch up on current events by reading the paper and watching local and national news reports on TV. On occasion, we take in a PBS program such as NOVA or a documentary. For the most part, we dislike prime-time commercial TV - will usually opt for a DVD movie on the boat, since we don't have cable onboard such as at home.
The onboard TV is used in these cases - extremely rare for us to watch a TV broadcast when away from dock. DVDs however, are welcome entertainment when snotty weather forces us to the pilothouse.
