My Ribtec has had one of the flaps removed for just that purpose.

It doesn't really stop that much water coming in so would not worry about it at all. Just make sure the glass is well repaired or you'll end up with water in the transom and eventually a soggy transom which would break with a 5hp main engine let alone an aux!!!

Get a B&Q hardpoint panel saw for a couple of qwid and cut it off.

If you really need an answer to your last question, you shouldn't be doing it!

Ouch!
Fair point, I really did know the answer (honest) but was a little surprised to see that Ribtec don't appear to have sealed where the cutout for the A frame is. I have now spoken to Ribtec who advise there is no real reason why this can't be done but would primarily advise an outboard bracket instead.
Sadly on further inspection I see that if I do transom mount the aux the steering bar from the main engine will hit the aux bracket when on almost hard over
