More auxiliary questions for sr4

Having used the search function and the internet and not found an answer, I need some help on kitting my 4m searider with an auxiliary outboard over the coming winter. I've been looking at the 3.3hp mariners as they seem to be quite thin and space saving but not sure if 3.3hp is going to be enough? My main problem is after getting hold of an adequate outboard is how to mount whatever engine I end up purchasing onto the transom?? Having the deluxe deck with the moulded 'bracing slopes' (Or whatever the proper term is) doesnt allow room to mount next to the main engine? Any help is much appreciated as there are no pictures it seems anywhere of the deluxe transom on the 4meter with an auxiliary fitted.

If you cant get it mounted on the transom, I saw once a rib with the aux mounted on the console, so if you break down you can tilt the main engine up and fix the smaller engine in. Also saves weighing down the back of the boat further.
