It has to have at least one attachment point off the mast. My question is, can the camera switch sides, or if you fly the other hull, do we get an underwater look? :D

Im guessing it's mounted on a neaby doc (or other seperate object/person) that you flew by. It would be tough beleive it is mounted to your boat but I'd enjoy being proved wrong.

I weigh 177 & sail in wind that is 20 mph to 25 mph to get the hull flying.
