Is the Victron shunt the same size as the Blue Sea shunt?

As mentioned in another thread, I'm redoing my high current wiring. Rather than bolting everthing directly to the bulkhead, I'm attaching all the gear (bus bars, ACR, switch, etc.) to a piece of marine plywood (with machine screws and t-nuts), which I'll then attach to the bulkhead.

I've got a Blue Sea multimeter, and have attached the shunt to the plywood. Based on recommendations from that other thread, I envision installing an additional Victron monitor at some point in the future. To make things easier, I'd like to install the t-nuts for the Victron shunt now. Based on photos, the Victron shunt looks identical to my Blue Sea shunt (with the exception of the circuit board). Can anyone verify that they are the same size? (If so, I'll just use the Blue Sea shunt as a pattern to install the t-nuts).
