actually using the same system (tripod mount) but on a stainless steel 1/4 inch thread on the front of the a-frame of the boat...I am always afraid loosing the gopro (and noticing it only a couple of miles later) , but this seems to work very good until now, lesser parts lesser things which can come loose. I noticed that the standard gopro stuff isnt reacting so well to seawater by the way and the ebay stuff must be worse(?)...or..
@ nugent : this telescoping monopole thingy, thanks, that is a good one!
