Aux Outboard for SR4.0

Anybody ever mount an aux outboard on the transom on an Avon SR4.0 .
I currently have a 60hp 2 stroke on it so not much room . The transom on the SR is the moulded type which flares out towards the tubes so its doesn’t look like it would be easy to attach using the O/B thumbscrews . I don't particularly want to drill holes to attach an O/B bracket but it maybe my only options .
Any ideas anyone ?.

Before drilling any holes for an aux. make sure u can get full steering lock on the main engine without clouting the aux!
On a 4M that will be challenging!

Thanks for that . Might see if I can get a loan of one and see how it fits .
Your right in saying that there isn't much room but I only need a couple of Hp
for use on the local lakes so it just might sqeeze in . Offshore I am always in company of other boats so I wouldn't need it .

Cheers
