Our 5.85 Ribcraft had an aux bracket on, however it failed. We removed it and now mount the aux direct to the transom. It is also ready for when you need to use it, far less messing about in my opinion.
Not really, the transom is high as it is a diesel inboard. The engine is a short shaft so we can use it on our dingy also. Otherwise that would be my preferred option.
