I suction cup mounted mine to the helm and that location works well. I also use a lanyard, I don't trust suction completely.
I time lapsed going through Hell's Gate in GA with visibility almost 0/0 but not quite because you could see the markers about 50' off the bow. It was really cool and then speed it up to watch the fog lift, very cool. Be patient, there is a learning curve in the editing that I haven't completely surmounted. I use Go Pro Studio.
