A/V Luxury and Reliability ... at Sea
Slide 5 of 6


Tech Outfitting

There’s a big difference in putting in A/V and automation gear into a house versus a home at sea. With a boat you can’t simply cut into drywall or drill into wood studs. On this ship, the walls and ceilings are constructed of panels. To run wires in a wall you need to remove whole panels, which could involve hundreds of screws for one wall. And since ships rock, sometimes a lot, you need to secure all the wires inside the walls with clips every few feet to make sure they don’t rattle or shift in bad weather. Compounding that, the ship’s walls only offer a little more than an inch of depth, so Russell couldn’t use the kind of large conduit that’s preferred in home installations.
