Television Mount

Curious to where everyone might be installing their television(assuming you've decided to install one)

We went with a 32" Samsung SF351 thin monitor. Just about 1" thick at the base, and thinner and the top. The mount allows for us just about see the monitor from outside which is a nice addition that we did not plan on.

Re: Television Mount

Thanks! Installed ourselves. Drilled our first 3 holes in our boat just this weekend Will be using an Android media box connected to an 8TB drive. All the movies and TV we'll need. (actually, the media sever is a little more complicated than that, but I'll talk about it more when it is installed).

The one aspect we were worried about was hitting the TV when coming up from the owner's cabin. So far it has not been an issue.

The mount is a QualGear QG-TM-005-WHT from Amazon.

Re: Television Mount

Congrats! You don't own a boat until you've drilled a hole in it.

Re: Television Mount

I too hate drilling holes!

Our set up is very similar to yours. Hitting the TV in the companionway does not seem to be a problem as long as it is tied back firmly. I am about 6ft 1in as a reference point.

We have found that we never use the extension of the mount if viewing inside. The option to view from the cockpit is good. I have a 2 TB WesternDigital MyCloud LAN server that does media serving (wifi) to the LG smart TV. works well. The LAN drive can also back up any PCs or handhelds you have on board.

Re: Television Mount

Bye the way that is where they mount the factory option as well. At least all of the ones that I have seen on the earlier hull #s.

Re: Television Mount

Anyone do this with the factory installed freeze instead of the cupboard?? Just wondering how much more difficult it is?

Re: Television Mount

No problem with the freezer in place. I was able to do it without removing the freezer but it may be easier if you pull the freezer half way out. The freezer is in an inner frame/shell. As I recall this is boxed on all sides so pulling the fridge out won't help a lot. There is plenty of clearance for bolts.
