When I get around to doing this, I am going to mount it on the starboard shelf above the coat closet fore of the head. I will lose that space as a shelf, but it is at least an inch thick so I can put some pretty hefty bolts through there.

...and another site with some mounts I found - a couple of pages.

Cool. I'll try and drop by. As of today at least, the weekend weather is looking promising. C'mon sunshine!

Talk about barely fitting! I've got MAYBE an eighth of an inch of "wiggle-room" on this after installing it. I got about the biggest TV I could get it looks like to fit in this space. One of my concerns was the "torque" on the cabinet wall to which the TV bracket is mounted. Thankfully I could gain access to the back-side of it by removing the (inside) forward "wall" of the upper cabinet, so I glued a custom-cut piece of hardwood on the inside to give me that much more "support" on the bracket when the TV is "hanging" out there. As it turned out, the TV actually rests (somewhat) on the shelf it swings above in certain positions, so I don't think there will be any cabinets being pulled apart... too bad, also as I wanted to send SeaPuppy the bill to replace the cabinet! And I doubt we'll have to "secure it" when we're underway due to the fact that it can be tilted so it rests on the shelf below. You'll notice I had to remove the CO Detector to make it easier to drill (see the wires coming out of the ceiling?) good thing I did because the black ground wire has never been connected to this thing! They're so darned sensitive I'll probably install the same "cord switch" for on/off as I did for our mid-berth CO Detector. And these photos may come out upside-down, I don't know why they got transmitted that way... sorry!
