34 2000 Mainship pilot stern thruster?

Hi, Has anyone installed the SideShift ST 340 stern thruster on their pilot? With the boats tunnel in the mid of the transom I can't see how to not block the tunnel to get the 8" blades at least 5" under the surface like the instructions advise??? I really need a stern thruster and this one looks well engineered.
Anybody? Thanks.
Sea ya
Fred

Side Shift thruster are different.........

And I may have to go to you brand. Thanks fir the reply. Anyone have a SideShift on a 34 Pilot?
As you can see if I move this unit to the side of the tunnel one of the propellers would be in the flow when running. Not good.
