Nav lights - 23XL

I want to clamp a pair of bow lights a few inches above the deck on my bow pulpit's vertical railings. I thought I could find lights with adjustable mounts/clamps for that purpose. But I've only been able to find lights that mount to a vertical surface, parallel to the keel, or a horizontal surface. A vertical bow rail is none of that, so now I'm looking for some sort of mounting surface that can be clamped on and adjusted to vertical as well as straight fore/aft. Does anyone know where I can find such a thing?

And where do other owners have their running lights mounted?

I don't have room on the deck. The fitting for the forestay/jib tack is right on the bow, roller furler fitting behind that, and the anchor rode deck pipe behind that.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Rick
