    Mike,

    The GoPro HD camera has a variety of different mounts available. Most people have been using the suction cup mount for boat videos. Brad (honey/blue 22) even took some with the camera suction mounted on the outside of the hull side just below the rubrail. They really stay put.

    I also bought the "handlebar" mount. That is what was used for this. I mounted a short grab bar along the section behind the back seat, in front of the engine hatch. My experience in a 16 has been that it is very desirable to have a grab rail for each hand.

    They have all kinds of adapters to let you be creative in the direction the camera aims.

    The only down side to the bar mount, is the gear whine that is transmitted up through the hull. I haven't noticed that with videos others have shot using the suction mount.

    Sounds great and looks good bill,,from the sound of it it kinda sounds like you may be going over the 4800 rpm mark...let me know the next time mike is headed to your neck of the woods and ill let you borrow the 26 p ultra this time,,fair warning this one will cut you so ware gloves when installing it,,it also has alot of cup in it so you may be down on rpms in the big end..If you like it then i will have my prop guy labb your 24 like my 26..

    Thanks Mike. I am heading to the Adirondacks with the boat for a week. Their altitude is about 1,000 feet higher than Lake Michigan, so I don't know what, if any difference that will make. I will let you know how the 24 performs.

    Thanks for the offer of the 26 Ultra. What's the story on changing gears in the outdrive? I have 1.61:1. What's lower (1.43:1?)? What's the expense?

    The engine seems to like running to 4800. If I went with different gears, I could use these same props, but they would be spinning faster at a given rpm.

    i would leave it 1.61,,the boat wont accelerate as fast with the lower gears and it will take longer to get on plane..People done realise that adding cup in a prop is like adding pitch..their was like 6-800 rpm differance between my 2 26 p ultras,until i tore the ear off of one of them ..
