I would NEVER start punching holes in a perfectly good fiberglass hull just to mount an UW light. Every hull opening is a weak point, for not only catastrophic flooding but seepage into the core causing permanent damage.
Reality is only a few boats this size cruise the crystal clear waters of Bahamas or Carib. most boats are kept in murky waters and do you really want to see things lit up and floating by in brown water?? Not me.
Mount something on trim tabs or swim platform brackets that way you haven't devalued your hull come resale time.
