Looks like plenty room to me for the auxilliary. Turn the main engine hard lock to hard lock to ensure it doesn't touch the auxiliary. Reckon you should be able to move the Honda slightly more towards the sponson so it's clear. If the Honda is long shaft, and it looks like it is, then it should be fine.

My auxilliary engine is long shaft and it clears the water when underway. You can add a ratchet strap from the transom knee or floor (use a stainless steel U bolt as an anchor point) to the auxilliary powerhead to ensure it doesn't bounce about.

OK but point is, if your main is offset, put aux in side with most clearance

Do you think once in water and aux fully tilted that it would require a bracket to raise it up more so would not drag

Not as exciting as the above vid, but this one also shows no bad effect with direct transom mount.
