A GoPro stand for your boat: RowingHack


Thanks to the wonderful Adam Bruce and the Row2k crowd for this great post about how to make a great value GoPro mount for your boat.  He estimates it costs about US$35 which is under £28 by my reckoning.

I particularly like the fact that it’s a temporary stand – no holes are drilled in the boat canvasses.

Here’s the list of ‘ingredients’

Purchased materials:

  • 3 suction cups ($6.87 each)
  • 2- 10ft x 3/4” PVC ($2.36 each)
  • 3- ¼-20 x 2” stainless steel bolt ($0.61 each)
  • 6- ¼-20 x 2.5” stainless steel bolts ($0.67 each)
  • Flat black spray paint ($3.76) – optional

Common boathouse materials:

  • Scrap 2×4
