In the US, you want to be careful about these kind of mods. USCG regs regarding nav lighting mandate that the fixtures (including bulbs) be USCG approved for illumination, coverage, etc. Modification voids the existing certification.
Not that there's a great chance you'll be cited, but should there be an accident where lighting comes into play, it's not something I'd like stacking up against me.
