If you're talking about eyelets...I have seen it done on here. Use large washers dabbed in silicone so they do not leak. I think you should be ok, if you don't mind eyelets sticking out on top.

But will it support the weight of the top from the center? With one hook

Maybe if you used a large plate underneath. To better distribute the load. But are you sure you want to drill a hole in the top? That's a mod you can't undo.
