Same issue on a smaller boat
, depending on crew size. I've already whittled my port settee down to love seat size by extending the chart table, and might at some point make it more of an easy chair by extending the galley
. In a pinch, it can still be used as a berth by opening a door in the chart table, and sticking one's feet in there. But the issue has never come up.
The reciprocal issue is why would one or two people on something like a 36-er need that huge circular dinette on the other side, taking up half the boat
But one does need to retain sufficient sea berths and lounging areas. As far as TV mounting, an HD projector and a pull-down screen
might offer more flexibility. For example, you could reverse them, depending on which side of the boat you want to lounge on. VR goggles might make all of that obsolete anyway.
