I don't trust a sticky pad, even a 3m one so still looking for a mechanical fixing of some sort.
I saw the roll bar mounts and may go this way but would prefer something neater mounte on the top plate of the frame.
The plate the camera is fixed to in the box may even do if cut down slightly or I may cut out the suction mount and drill this.
I just find it surprising there is no fixed mount suitable for screwing to a flat surface other than sticky pads............
I am going to use it diving as well but with a second modified case and diferent mounts. The case for surface use is going to have the floaty door mod, not because there is any chance of finding if it falls off as speed but just in case it is accidentaly dropped overboard when mounting or similiar.

The roll bar mount is good I have one. The video below was taken today with my new HD Pro 2 using the mounting pad.

Go Pro systems work very well on the A Frame as well as suctioned onto the deck areas.
This vid was off the A Frame with go pro. I have also the active camera but keep failing to get best use of it, I have also bought the additional battery pack for HD Hero as it allows some 5 hrs of videoing

I have found another shop that is local to me that will do it for 263 and if it goes wrong I can just take it back, I'll try and get a forum deal and give you the details if there is enough interest?

What is the difference between the old go pro and the new one? they both film in 1080p by the looks of it.

also is this what I would use to secure the go pro to my a frame? GoPro Roll Bar Frame Mount For Go Pro HD Hero | eBay

Yes that is the A frame and tube clamp and works well. I have both old and new go pros. Old is two aaa batteries and new is rechargeable unit from USB cable and has more features including additional battery pack or a view screen and they plan a remote very soon
