GoPro advice
      #1584208 - 04/20/14 06:07 PM (73.184.8.195)

Have new GoPro Hero 3+. What should I use to connect it to the rail on a sailboat? Traveling to BVI next month and need to get an accessory to do that.

Will the same thing work to attach to the handlebars on my Honda Goldwing?

This is probably what you're looking for. I have it and it works great.

Same mount will attach to a boat hook to use as an extension pole.

If you want a non-plastic mount, then this one might be for you:

Have it used for two years now on the stern pulpit on our sailboat.

I would highly recommend this. Very versatile. GoPro Jaws

I also like the jaws, so much easier to move from one spot to the other with varying sizes, one jaw fits most.

I used the suction cup mount for most of my fixed shots. Works great on any flat gel coated surface on the boat. Let's you mount the camera near the waterline for some very cool shots. I brought the handlebar mount and used it once on a SUP paddle. A short pole for POV and UW shots also comes in handy.

I bought the jaws, will be using it next month on our sail. I've attached it to my 84 Goldwing, works great!

If you do go the suction cup route, be sure to tie a safety line to it. Nothing worse then having it come loose when you least expect it.
