    305 TV and Cupboard space-gctid384631

    My 305 had an analogue TV in the cupboard above the sink. This made the cupboard totally unusable for storage purposes. I purchased a 19" LCD TV with built in DVD player and a TV wall bracket. Then I took one of the existing sliding cupboard doors (as a sample) to the local plastics supplier and had them match the plastic (perspex) and cut to the size of the "unusable" cupboard.By mounting the TV bracket to the bow side of the cupboard (above the foot of the forward bed) and drilling an additional hole for the cables I can position the TV (a) towards the sitting area - as shown in photo, (b) towards the forward bed, or (c) by using a small bracket and a premade stretch strap - secure the TV when running.

    That's exactly what Bayliner did in later models, for example, my former 2007 305. Nice job!
