I have to agree, my personal business life is a long one. I would want not hear nothing but the water.

We do watch the odd DVD on computer but that's about it. I doubt I'd ever instal a TV as such.

I do. It come with the boat. I never use it and I am going to take it away and change it for a nice painting.

Update: Rarely use the salon TV as a TV. Regularly share movie night in the aft cabin. Don't use the DVD player much anymore - all our movies are ripped to the boat computer and copied to an iPod Touch and the original DVDs put in storage. Do use the salon TV as a secondary monitor for charting and radar display.

I confess, I had one. But, only because my ex-wife demanded it. When she left, so did the TV.

In this digital era it would mean packing a satellite dish along, I cant even imagine trying to keep it locked onto a satellite.

I don't even have it at the house! It was a big waste of money with no value in return!

All garbage and blah, blah, blah commercials.

I'm a total hypocrite though...I make those stupid commercials!

Keeps the kids happy during rain days, with a game or movie while under way or at anchor/dock. Other then that it's not used very much.
Oh it's a 16 flat screen with laptop connection as well.
