Is that why you are wanting to install a box to the service mast ?
Since it seems that you already have a box up there why do you want a new one. I would suggest you find another place. Never seen a box mounted on a service mast before
 
Mounting anything on the mast runs afoul of most PoCo's rules, and is quite foolish just because of the fact there is no overcurrent protection at all on those conductors, as there are no fuses or circuit breakers on the secondary of a PoCo transformer. If I spent a little bit of time could come up with a NEC article prohibiting it too.
