You might want to put up some details, even a transom photograph.

What vintage of Yamaha 90 main engine, what make and size of auxiliary ... going be hard to comment without knowing a bit more

From experience I prefer direct mounting to the transom as it is simpler and there is less messing around when you need to use it. Obviously you will need to check if you have room on the transom as that would rule out direct mounting.

If your transom is a straight one no problem mounting directy if space is available and does not interfere with main engine, if transom is cueved at sides, will probably need a engine mount or a long shaft engine.

Happy Boating

+1 for that. Transoms don't (usually) snap and fall off, which doesn't always appear to be the case with brackets according to tinternet.

+2 for transoms.

I had an adjustable Plastimo stainless steel outboard bracket on a Zodiac Pro with a Tohatsu 3.5hp and it rattled like a Vauxhall Viva going down a gravel driveway!

Once the Honda 5hp is on and it's tilted - is there someway to secure it while underway? The tilt mechanism on most small outboards isn't robust enough for the kind of vibration and shock that will be likely when underway. I've secured my Mariner 4hp (2-stroke) with a ratchet webbing strap (through the engine cowling) to a stainless-steel U bolt screwed to the transom leg support. Works for me and is solid as a rock.
