First question I'd ask is how to waterproof (and if you're planning on running whitewater, shockproof) the device. Then how to affix it in such a way that it doesn't damage the boat nor come loose accidentally even if hit with a paddle.

Websearching for "kayak gps" finds some commercial products for the purpose. Can't vouch for how well or poorly any of them work.
