Default TV in Cabin

Hey All,

3000 SCR, 32 inch flat mount.

Ended up running the wiring into the bathroom GFI. Talk about a fishing issues. Had to get the line through a hole roughly the size of a quarter. Used an endoscope to complete the job.

Good luck to anyone who does likewise. Originally wanted it on the radar arch but spoke with a few people who had to replace them every few years due to sun/weather.

Thanks

Are there studs behind there? What are the screws attaching to?

I would love to see how this Tv was mounted as far as on the other side. I'm looking to do this in my new to me maxum 3300, want to mount mine in the exact same area. I ran a power outlet in the overhead piece to the cabinet on the opposite side of the boat so power is no issue, just mounting the bracket

When I'm able to get back to the marina I'll take a picture for you. You will need to remove the mirror as your be drilling through the wall to make a pilot hole. One will be behind the mirror and just below the towel rack/holder to the right. I used clear silicone, its hidden by a hanging towel. Just have to take a grinder or hack saw after driving the holes to make it flush.

So I have a question. What are you guys watching? Are you streaming via smart phone, or a DVD player? I've never really missed TV while on my boat, but the upgrade is pretty cool and has me thinking. Plus these flat screen TV's are so inexpensive these days it's not a pricey upgrade.

That would be great, I'm nervous about drilling holes in my boat. I'm gonna take my mirror down in mine today and just see where about the holes would be going through at.

Wait, lol...

Did you take a picture of your phone projecting a picture of the TV in the picture? Picture-ception?

I got my tv sitting on my table today until I figure out the mounting. I did smart view connecting my phone to my tv and played hulu through and onto my tv. Worked great, good workaround not having internet or a dish

Genius. amazing how much technology has improved in the last decade. I used to know some folks with dishes on their boats.

Yes it is, gets better and better. I have been looking into the dish for the boat. Looks like once its mounted and wires ran you simply take your receiver from your home or purchase another receiver just for you boat. Plug it up, turn it on and it automatically locks onto the sattelite.
