No, and don't really want one, have never missed it.

We have all that crap at home. Our 2 months per summer on the boat is our family and decompression time. We read a lot, play chess and scrabble, read some more, watch sunsets and go to bed early.

In particular my son, who is now 12, has never missed the TV. He devours books on our cruises, and just won his school's spelling bee (again). I think there is a connection.

We have a perfect spot to mount one, but I'm thinking an oil painting instead.

Maine Sail, I'll look for your boat next summer.

TV on board

I do not watch TV at all when at home, when cruising-mostly the Bahamas- for 6 months of the year I watch a small flat screen occasionally while docked
and if the weather is less thn optimum.

No TV, as mentioned I can play on Laptop, but, I never bring DVD's.

I do have a small radio and it receives shortwave too. It is fun to play with to see what I can hear, or is that, hear what I can see?

Read, I have thousands of books on Laptop and MP3 music.

Learn a new knot to tie now and the "The Ashley Book of Knots" keep me busy for the rest of my life. Ha!

Lot to do on a boat, it just finding what a person can enjoy and doing it.

For some it is TV, for me, it other things.

DVD no TV

I would rather enjoy the peace and quiet, the company or the scenery. But we do have a DVD player and if its raining or we are just in the mood for a movie or old 'the honeymooners' show, its pretty enjoyable. I admit I would love to watch a good football game on board sometime. But it is nice to escape all the bunk.

For now, we're stuck at a marina so, yes, we do have a tv aboard. Don't watch much tv, but do have a good dvd inventory and swap with other boaters

Okay, Leslie. Now I'm confused. What is it that confuses you about my post?

SeaWolf, your post makes sense but what was on my screen was not your post?

"What is the most poisonous Have three children together to chat, said what the most dangerous drugs: their children a "mosquito most drugs, and my brother's hand was a bit mosquitoes, red and itchy." Child B "Hornets will be the best drugs, and my brother was stung Hornets then the face, it is now also the pain and swelling. "child C for a long time want to say" I do not know what the East Ciza my sister, her belly swollen big. "led strip (http://ledtech-shop.de/LED-LeistenMo...-57.html)power led ("

Above was what came to me....copied it on my computer email and put above cause I could not make sense of the " most poisonous Have three children" yada, yada, yada....It was not under you name and I can not relocate it....just know it did not make sense to me and I thought I had a stroke or something.

Sorry but you, I understand! Don't know where that post went.

with kind regards,

Leslie

Now I understand. I received 5 of that same post and couldn't make heads or tails of it, either. I feel better now that I know I'm not alone.

Have a good one.
