here's the second mount I built.
I've never sailed with a helmet before - but I got a standard Gath model and drilled two holes in it. the closeup shot clearly shows the polycarbonate sheet attached to the outside of the helmet.
there is a layer of neoprene cushioning the bolts from the camera casing - and to complete the design cable ties hold the entire thing rock solid.
here are some shots taken on the first 45 minute test run.
|[my wave kit]||[G21 gets ready]||[dan doesn't fall in]|
|[mid vulcan]||[wave threesome #1]||[waterstart]|
|[mid tack, port]||[wave threesome #2]||[jump]|
some additional notes:
I made the vulcan.
One of those waves was mast high - don't remember which one.
The jump is my favourite shot.
Dan can actually sail.
