Default Mounting Ripitide ST pilot with quick bracket

Replacing the riptide SM with a Riptide ST iPilot on my SeaFox 200XT. Anyone else have problem of getting close to centerline because of the way the mount hangs over the side. Had no problem with the SM and quick release bracket. Any pics of how you got yours mounted even it its different make of boat would help me.

Thanks
Was trying to mount so if it was stowed it kept the front deck clear. The SM stowed run parallel to the port side. Looks like the ST is gonna take a different angle and run across the front deck. The mounting frame footprint is a lot smaller and because of the shaft roller and gearbox clearance has to be mounted closer to the edge.
