Installing a bow floodlight


any suggestions or tips on installing a bow exterior floodlight
I have a waterproof circular light approx 6" with one small bolt bracket

I had the idea to install it about a foot up the mast shining forward
however there is the obvious concerns of it being in the way of things!
mainly the 150% Genoa, though I tested the clearance and the sail blows back and forth about a foot off the deck

also, a possible location could be just forward of the forward hatch- thru bolded from below via the deck
this brings concerns of having something sticking up... and/or having to drill thru the deck to mount it

scrap the whole idea?

thanks ahead
