I was just wondering if there are any ST-44 owners out there who might be able to confirm the actual dimensions of the recessed opening in the salon and state room (I think they were both the same size?).
Thanks in advance for any help/guidance you can provide...
I have a 28" in my master salon. I filled the "cut out" with acoustic foam, put a board over it that fit into the cut-out, secured with brackets, mounted a TV mount to the board, and TV to the mount. I could probably do 32" dont know about 40". Consideration is the closet door being able to open. 28" seems plenty to me.
For the Salon, I haven't yet messed with that TV but think its a 28 or 32". The TV mount / bracket is installed to the roof of the cut out (accessible via the electrical cabinet that swings open). I was going to see if I can somehow put a mount on the back wall of the cut out but dont think there is access to thru-bolt. The TV does not sit in the cut out but rather in front.
We stream everything and there has yet to be something we couldn't watch. We get locals through streaming too. I actually took off the HDTV and unplugged the AC power from it, probably will not bother re-installing but keep for a future owner.
Congrats on your new boat!
