You don't have a lot of room there.

I think the only way you will be able to do it is by using something like this...

Ben, your link doesn't work!
I have often seen them attatched to the rear of the jockey seat, although would you really want to move it in an emergency and have you got room on the transom to attatch it?

Thanks

Iíve got a bracket which will give me 300mm lift up and down so Iíll make something based on your picture, might try and mount it from the bottom of the ďAĒframe vertical section
But going for a beer might look better in the morning

The only time I've needed the aux, it was safely on it's bracket on the deck under a foot of water.
I keep it on the transom now.

Why bother

Bedajim.

I gave up on the auxillary because

If I am going out in the rough stuff I only go in the company of others. Trying to use up aux in heavy weather tends to be fairly pointless.
In summer I tend to be with family and don't tend to go to places where there are no other boats around,
Unless you go for a fairly big aux they are fairly uneffective and bigger aux is too much hassle.

do you really need it on the transom?

Mount it on the back of the seat back and then drill the skeg.

If you then get two aluminium sections of angle iron, fasten back to back to the deck then you can fit the skeg between them and add a wing nut.

Safe and secure!
