Thread: ST3 Ram mount

    ST3 Ram mount

    Well I am wanting a small handheld gps/chartplotter, where would be a good and secure place to put a ram ball mount? It would be used for the GPS and a GoPro depending on what I am using the ski for that day. I have looked the ski over and see a couple possibilities, but don't want to ruin the aesthetics or functionality. Plus the cover has to still fit.
    Thanks

    *the ski is a 2018 GTX Limited 300

    I place my suction cup ram mount in front of the left mirror.

    The suction cup has advantages and disadvantages.

    1. Can be moved/relocated until you find the best location.
    2. Suction cup can fail - be sure to have a backup tether.

    Unfortunately I learned this lesson the hard way, I forgot to attach my tether and as I got into the really deep water I heard a splash and in a split second my stuff went overboard never to be seen again.

    I would never trust a camera or any other electronics to a suction cup. Even if it’s on a tether it will still bounce off the ski a few times before you catch it
