Honda and Yamaha size?

I want to know the difference in size of the 6 hp yamaha compared to the 5hp honda. It's mainly the dimension of the engine top and shaft length (presume they are the same shaft length).

There doesn't seem to be any Honda branded carry case so was looking at the one sold by Yamaha main reason for asking about the size of each OB.

Dimensions are listed on the respective websites (for new motors, anyway; and Honda only lists width.) Not sure what dimension you're looking for.

Yamaha-Motor.com Marine.Honda.com

Width is probably the cowl + whatever is on the engine that the cowl slips into before being latched.

Yamaha lists fore/aft, width, and height.

If its something you are serious about buying why not head to your nearest dealer with a tape measure and negotiate a deal. With two such good choices it would come down to customer service and price as much as anything else.
