Another GoPro Mount Thread (Duckies)

With Christmas behind me, and boating season still a ways off, it is now project season. This year, I would like to build some GoPro mounts for my Aire Lynx II. I have searched other threads and there are lots of raft mounts and kayak mounts are pretty easy, but I have not seen much that addresses the design challenges of a ducky.

So if any of you have built ducky mounts and can post pictures of the mounts, as well as footage taken from them, they would be much appreciated.

I use Railblaza mounts on my touring kayak & raft.....love them. Here's a Railblaza mount that works on inflatables. ACK has lots of Railblaza mounts & accessories. Give them a look. They are great folks & always happy to answer questions if you shoot them an email or give them a call.

I use a webbing strap looped through a drain hole to secure a foam block on the side tube, into which I have slotted my camera. This works great for my camera which is a Kodak playsport but you may have to mount a go pro mount onto the foam block also. Do this as close to the bow as possible, both to get a better camera view and to prevent knocking the camera whilst paddling.

Thanks for the tip, I actually have a Scotty Rod holder that is kind of similar that I rigged for the ducky, and you lead me to a camera mount that fits their system. It looks pretty similar to what you are using with Railblaza, and seems like a pretty versatile way to go.

You are very welcome. ACK has a lot of mounts & accessories for Scotty and Railblaza. I have found a lot of useful products on their website.
