see what your saying if your boat is narrower than mine i have changed mine now by fitting it on the transom which only leaves 5mm clearance when the main engine is in full lock when the aux is down and it does rub the A frame when lowered but a bit of paint scuff is ok for me on the aux cowl.
one thing i did look at was an out rigger bolted to the A frame across the tube not to have the aux on permanently but to fit in an emergency might be worth looking at in your case you would have to store the aux whilst not in use say a plate on the back of the jockey seat not knowing your boat its hard to be more positive but food for thought hope you sort something out
the bracket is not clear and unfortunately i have no pics of the clamp but it slid down the A frame not fixed not ideal as the aux was limited in movement but better than nothing the bracket idea i got from a scaffold clamp which has a swinging bolt if that helps anyone.
