Putting on a show
I am addicted to television. I have been my entire life. On demand streaming has only made it worse. On Gypsy, our last boat, I instituted a no television policy because I didn't want screens to lure me away from the boring brilliance of being on a boat. Well, Scott put a television on Gypsy and Mack got jealous and now we have this.
That is an Insignia television that has 12V DC capabilities. It is now hanging from the bulkhead (aka wooden wall that everything on the boat is tethered to) thanks to this television mount.
The television was like $110 at Best Buy and the wall mount was like $80. So for less than $200, my worst nightmare came true.
And can I just say having a TV on the boat is AMAZING. We can watch movies, Mack can play video games, we watched the presidential debate there instead of at home. It (so far) has only come on at night, when it's too cold to sit outside, and it has made the boat so much more like a place to live rather than a place to visit. I know it will be a struggle to pick up a book rather than watch tv, but it will also be a blessing for long, overnight sails or riding out bad weather. It's on this amazing (and surprisingly sturdy) mount that lets us angle it or pull it out from the wall so it can be seen from everywhere. Yeah, I'm a convert. But I'm still a televisionaholic and like all aholics, admitting it is the first step in controlling it.
