It's complicated
Relocating nav lights from sides of pulpit and wondering if anyone has mounted them on the pilothouse, if so, where?

To be compliant (not that everyone is or the authorities will ever give you a hard time for it) you need your all around white light 1 meter above your red & green.

Tom and Laurence are pretty close to spot on when you add in the height of radar pedestal and the pole for the light. If you're not going to go that high (i.e. a roof mounted radar, just put them lower on the pilothouse.

with the winch where i'm placing it on the back of the pulpit, where would you all suggest the cleats go if not on deck on either side of pulpit? i'm concerned that the pulpit itself doesn't have the same structural integrity as original location of cleats which was through pulpit and hull.

The pulpit combined with the deck is over 3” thick - factory location of cleats
