I helped with a delivery to Port Clyde Maine several weeks ago. As we got in closer to shore there were pots every thirty feet or so. When we were motor sailing into the harbor I stood "pot watch" on the bow. I had no problem seeing the pots without lights. I think that a spotlight might narrow your range of view. IMO,,just acquire your night vision and keep alert. You should have no problem spotting the pots with a full moon.
