Rib spotlights

A good friend of mine recently bought a 8.6m cobra with twin spotlights on the A-frame. The spotlights have come loose and do not stand on their own anymore due to the impact they take in the chop.
Does anyone know of a spotlight that will last at speed and in a bit of chop?

You can get ones that actually mould around the a frame, they're used on 4x4's a fair bit.
Big question would be does he really need spot lights?

Personally, I'd shove the spots in the bin along with one of the twin 12ft whips, the stereo system and the other superfluous crap that is often comes with a Cobra.

Asking alot of any spot/mounting on an A frame to take the hard bashing of repeated rough cruiseing.I have an Aqua signal hand held which plugs into a 12v socket on the consul[and secure fitting] when needed...not that often BUT very handy when it is.Otherwise stowed safely when not in use.
