    We are upgrading the salon TV on our 1988 46. What size have others installed and how? Show me your pictures. Thanks!

    This is 2020. Doesn't everyone get the biggest TV they can afford and fit? Just a couple of years ago the average home TV was 55". Then prices came down and today it's 65-70". I was just reading that in a very few years they expect it to be 120".

    Thanks, we used the existing space by relocating the AC vent, used the existing doors to the cabinet, but cut out the centers to mount plexiglass and kept the frames to keep it looking as original as possible.. wanted it to look like it always belonged there. 32 inch Sony Bravia, Behind those doors are shelves for electronics. What was amazing was when we got to the inlet side of the ac and cleaned years of grime off the condenser... ac blows wicked cold now...

    APC1128 Where is your air handler? I see you have your A/C vent next to the chair.... Mine is up there by the TV and I hate it blowing on us while we are trying to eat....

    Yes, by the chair is one of 3 electric heaters that we have on the boat. The AC air vents up behind the television and doesn’t blow on anyone which is nice!
