Depends on how much you don't want to drill holes in your Kayak...

The camera presumably will accept a standard threaded mount of which there is a multitude of different types available.

If you prefer to use the suction mount it will need a really smooth surface to remain secure. The best method of achieving that would be to bond suitably sized pieces of shiny plastic laminate to whatever flat areas of kayak are available.

If you want a horizontal mount at the top of the peak or curve of the upper deck just forward of the cockpit coaming, an adaptor will be needed. A piece of fine hardwood could be shaped to provide a close fit suitable for bonding or screwing to the kayak upper deck which will in turn present a flat surface for some plastic laminate.

I don't know if that would work but I think this is the power button if you press and hold then you boot into "Pre-Boot" mode. If you press and release the power button then it doesn't goto "Pre-Boot". I think your power button is stuck.. either that is broken that remains pressed and don't let the device to boot into normal mode.
Try hitting the power buttons surrounding with some a little hard thing while holding your device upside down and the button is downward.

or if you even keep pressing the power button the "preboot" appears and after 30seconds the devices enters into updates and it works fine.
