Default transom extention

hi i need some advice about making a new engine transom mount on my boat . i brought a new engine for my boat a year ago its a mercury 9.9 four stoke . the engine fits on the transom but as u can see its tight . i have just got the boat out for repairs and painting and have noticed the outboard sits to low by about 4 inches and because of how it is mounted in the boat it cant be tilted at all . were my boat is moored it is a shallow back water and in the summer can often catch the bottom so i was wondering if there is a solution . ie can i put another peice of wood on top of the other peice and maybe some sort of transom bracket to bring the out board further out and up ... to have the outboard tilt as it should do i would need it at least 12 inches away from the boat . any advice please Click image for larger version

Have a look on the shetland boats site as well.
youl see that on many boats called family favourite they too have set back engine mounts that also combine a swim platform etc.

the cavitation plate on your engine(just above the propellor)should be level with bottom of transom, or at max 1 inch below...
