Measure the drop at the location of the auxie. It will be less as it's at the side...

I guess your transom is similarly set up to mine.

A "longshaft aux" will likely clear the bottom of the hull (i.e prop in clear water) but will also remain above (or thereabouts) the bottom of the keel (V).

I tried a short at first - and had to get everyone to sit at the transom to keep the prop in the water!
