Suction cup mount wherever there's a flat surface.

I have two, Fat Gecko double suction cup mounts for my ski. Work well. No issues with my hero. I got them off amazon for about $45.
Here's a link to a vid I took last spring with these mounts.

If you value your camera at all do not use a suction cup. I know some will say they have used it with no issue. Its just playing with fire on a ski.
use the adhesive mounts and get a floaty or use a lanyard.

Ill be using the adhesive mounts and im gone take some fishing linde and tie it to the camera and put one of these on it so i can just unhook it and move it or take the camera off the ski completely

for the back of the ski thats easy.. anywhere on the flat part under the tow hook BUT put it closer to the back of the ski so you can use a wrench or screwdriver to tighten it down. ive found for that location the J hook works well and if you are using a lanyard (which you should be) you can wrap it around the grab handle and attach it to the tow hook.
as for the front of the ski and forgive me as i am not familiar with the yamis i feel the higher the better meaning above your gauges if there is room.
front and rear mount
side mount below the mirror
on my GTR i have noticed the camera picks up a lot of vibration when i have it mounted above the gauges. nothing i can really do about that. with that being said if you can mount it straight to the hull do that and use the nose plug to help reduce vibration even more. i dont care for the side mount to much since the ski cuts off so much but i can move it forward.
hope this helps.

I've been using a GoPro suction cup mount for 3 years. Never had one come loose. Even if it I have a lanyard.
