How many sail with a TV aboard?

Anyone have TV aboard? Not yet, but a small LCD with built in DVD is getting tempting for those rained-in days.

We have a flatscreen onboard too. So far, we have only used it at the dock. Its mounted on the wall very simular to Giu's.

Every time we use it we take it down and prop it up where ever it is most convenient. Sometime in the V-berth and sometimes in the saloon.

No! No! No! No! Watch the sunset, read a good book, kick back and watch the world around you - don't we all get enough of that media crap the rest of the year????

Why would you want that? I don't turn the one I have on at home so why would I want one on my boat?

Our flat screen in the main saloon is connected to the navigation computer so if you want you are able to watch the nav screen with surround sound. Cool!

On second thought, we do have a little 5' B&W that runs on battereries.

It will be useless when TV converts to digital.

I'll still listen to baseball and football on the transistor radio while we eat lunch dockside.

But on the water??

NO TV!! No radio, no CDs, just the wind and water!!
