Review: Kayalu deck mount for camera and deck light *PIC*

Hello all, I just posted the install of the leash cups for deck fittings, and here is what I am doing with them. Kayalu sells these cool camera mounts and deck lighting that only need a padeye to attach. I got mine from Joe Oblenis. He doesn't have them on his site but probably message him and he would get them for you. He's a Greenland kayaker and builds beautiful paddles so give Joe your business if you buy these. (I am not affilliated with him). www.joeoblenis.com

These things have a shock cord with a biner that clips in to a padeye and then sinches down to a thumb cleat. They have a rubber bottom that somewhat forms to the deck. I did find that for my very curved foredeck it helped to also wedge it under a bungee for stability, but on the flatter aft deck it worked fine. I am going to do a test of the new Panasonic Lumix TS2 so watch for that. Due to car repairs I didn't get to get out on the water yet. I did set the light up on my deck and walked over to the next hill, about 1.5 to 2 miles away, and the light was still very visible. It is waterproof/submersible. Both the light and the camera mount use the same attachment. The next few pics will show that. First you attach the bungee to the deck fitting.
