    4788 Master TV

    I'd like to add a TV to the master stateroom. Curious what people have found to be the best brand/size for a TV, and also if anyone has creative mounting solutions they like. My current plan is very basic, install it on the port side just forward of the hanging locker where the coax jack is using a basic articulating mount. There is currently an old AM/FM/Cassette deck just below that next to the light switches that I plan to replace with a Fusion AV650 and run the RCA cables to a new 3 RCA plate I will install next to the coax plate.

    Would love to hear what people have done. Thanks!

    Hi James,

    In my previous boat, a 4588, I installed a 28in Samsung smart tv from the ceiling on a fold up mount. When I wanted to use it, I simply folded it down. I mounted it just so it cleared the cabin door , which when unfolded, it was basically even to the foot of the bed. At first I thought it would be in the way when retracted down, but it was actually easy to pass by as it was just a tad past directly above the beds edge. When folded up, it nests it’s face/front to the ceiling and only set about 3inches or so down. I ran the wiring into the cieling lining to the starboard side where I had power, etc... it freed up my countertops for ther things....

      On our 4588 we 24" Smart TV on a arm mounted to the face of the strb cabinet, We can stow it out the way (and it is view able form there as well) or swing it out on the arm about 16" so it is more center,. Makes my wife happier that way...happy wife, happy life!!!

        We installed a new Visio 24" last year and it did not require a mount. The set wedges nicely between the DTV receiver and the ceiling right where you are planning to put it. I just used an earthquake strap for extra insurance in rough seas. So, you just might look for a set with exactly the right dimensions to fill the space.

          Thanks everyone, all great suggestions. I'll be on the boat for the next few days so will spend some time looking at the project in more detail and formulating my plan with all your suggestions in mind!

              Don't know if this helps but I just used a couple of straps from the canvas and slip a laptop or as in the pics a tablet. In there for late nite viewing. You can get remotes for a laptop cheep and the screen can be made to go upside down. Click image for larger version
