I wouldn't bother with velcro, it doesn't do very well when subject to UV over time...

As mentioned earlier, I mount my bow light using the suction cup mount, but securing it with a three-way 'bridle' of sorts from solid elastomer cord... One 'leg' attaches to the lifting handle forward, the other 2 run aft and to each side to points on the bow storage bag... it's a very secure setup, and has the additional advantage of working even when the dinghy chaps are in place... Sorry I don't have a pic handy, but surely you must have some attachment points somewhere up forward to run shock cord to?
