A fixed bracket would do the job but you will want a VERY sturdy one as they rarely seem designed for the high stresses of bouncing a heavy aux on a rib in rough seas. I had an adjustable one and it was really not good. I had to strap the engine to the A frame and transom eyes to stop if bouncing, which would have eventually led to damage to the aux, bracket and transom.

Thanks phil
Tou mentioned three phrases i am not sure i understand completely:
Stand off bracket, fixed bracket and adjustable.
I understand that the "convertable" such as first one in picture wont last long.
Anyway, i will take picture for already made bracket i have that may be used. It is bullet proof made of fiber. Looking like second one attached .
Will have to know how to fit it exactly as the traingular hypalon patch connecting transom to tube at each corner may need some modification..anyway about the how queztion when boat is here i will post some pictures to discuss the how to mount issue and get your offer.
