I have just fitted an Aux to my rib with about an inch to spare on the turning circle of the main engine, how far must the prop on the Aux be down for it to work properly, it wont be down as far as the main engine but will be just abou tbelow the boat

on mine the aux is just below the transom. provided the prop is lower than the transom you will be ok.

Ideally the cavitation plate should be just below the bottom of the hull.
