On my Johnson 6hp aux it looks like you can probably loosen off a clamp holding on the tiller handle and swivel it round so it is slightly offset the other way - though I haven't tried this yet, need to do a test run first and see what it feels like. Might be worth seeing if you can do this?

When i was out with a freind it was necesary to use his aux on a 20ft fishing fibreglass hardboat and we used the main engine to steer with ,the aux was set in the forward position .This i thought was normal but not really given it any thought before.It was slow to steer but under the circumstance was good

Hope it will have enough power, I'll have to see.

Do you mean use a paddle like on a kayak? Rear rudder style?
