Default Mounting a searchlight next to a radar

I have seen quite a few boats that mount thier searchlight next to a radar on the hardtop of thier boats without using a "tower", would the searchlight cause enough interference to greatly affect the radar's signal?

It probably wouldn't cause 'interference', but it certainly could cause a blind spot in that direction.
