Navigation lights for an inflatable

For safety reasons I prefer to have proper running lights for my dinghy. Years ago the portable lights with a bulb and 2D batteries made sense. With LEDs and better batteries the lights can be much more compact. While I replaced the old portable lights on my Folding dinghy with the same large D cell units but with LED bulbs I choose the newer compact Atwood portable navigation lights for my RIB in the Caribbean. The bracket for the transom all around light looks adequate but they offer no real solution to mount the red/green bow light on an inflatable hull. Fortunately glue on mounting pads for inflatables are made for a variety of purposes. In my case the Scotty rod holder with a glue on base is perfect. And when I am not using the light I have a decent rod holder. It will be a few months before I install it but here is a photo of the components and how they fit togetherk
