Re: How many sail with a TV aboard?

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.

Re: How many sail with a TV aboard?

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!

Sorry!

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

Re: How many sail with a TV aboard?

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

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.
