Default TV Install Next Year

I plan to install a 19" Skyworth AC/DC TV next year. I would like to install it inside the cabin at the bow (where a mirror would be if I had one). The boat is a 2002 2700 SCR.

One thing I noticed is the vinyl covered board does not seem to be very solid. Has anyone beefed this up somehow? Can I add something from inside the anchor locker? And most importantly, how hard is it to get the panel off?

Thanksl!!!!

Models and years vary. Mine has an anchor locker door in the bulkhead between the v-berth and the anchor locker. If I open it up and stick my head in there are screws going through the actual bulkhead to hold up the vinyl upholstered veneer that I see in the v-birth. So If I were mounting a tv, I would have 2 options. go though the vinyl covered vener and through the actual bulkhead behind it, or remove the vinyl veneer board, then use it as a template to make a sturdier one with 3/5 PT plywood, then reupholster the new board, reinstall it and then mount the tv.

Just a thought.

what I did with mine was to mount it on the stbd side on a swivel arm mt and drilled thru the shower....going thru the bow is easy ...pull the access panel to the anchor locker..what I'd do is mount or glue a 2x6 on the inside and let set..then drill thru the bkhd into the 2x6...that will priovide plenty of support for the tv mt...

I'm doing the same this winter in my aft cabin and dealing with the same lightweight board, but as I was examining how it was set in there and how things look I plan on bolting it to the board instead of screwing it and don't think I'll have a weight issue.

when bolting thru the bkhd....be sure you use large ...really large stainless steel washers.....this helps distribute the load more..
