We have one at home and I've always wondered about the practicality of one on a boat. Ours is on the higher end, High def, 3D Epson projector. But its much larger. I think the picture is better than a flat screen, but color isnt quite as good. I know epson makes a lot of models in all price
ranges. worth checking out anyways.
How long has your friend been using it on the boat? Any problems with moisture or corrosion
That could be great for overnight downwind passages. Great big screen right there in front of you
