IT looks like your A-frame is a lot stronger than mine-and possibly Matt H's too. The brace from it is a good idea.

It is a bit tight looking at that! Is there not room to fabricate an adaptor plate to fit a home-made aux bracket to the A-frame mount?

Agreed have a 5hp Silver Century long shaft which pushes 2 tonnes of Old Spice at 3 knots. Also have this one kicking around the garage looking for a good home, short shaft 5 hp silver century.

I also am having a problem trying to fit my Aux on a Valiant 4.9, there is nowhere for the Aux bracket, does anybody carry their Aux on board and how do they carry it. Wouldnt it be difficult to fit on the transom or bracket while the boat is rolling while stopped at sea, even very dangerous?

Depends how heavy an outboard you have I suppose. A 10 Hp Mercury is going to weigh 30 kgs, but a 3.5 hp Tohatsu/Merc/Johnson is only 12 kgs and that Seagull above is 19 kgs, easy enough to carry with one hand.
