Kicker Mount & Motor on a CS27

Has anyone mounted a kicker on the CS 27? Thoughts?

It's a little problematic with the slope of the transom and the need for the outboard rudder to have a clear swing both ways.

If it's not the primary motivation I'd count on using the dinghy if you lose your inboard engine for any reason.
