hey, when you mount a engine on the transon, does it have to be offset >??? to counteract the steering , or is dead straight, as there is a thingy on the outboard to do it for you!! any ideas??

It depends on lots of things, usually the deeper the V of the hull the more the offset. But the position of the console also makes a difference. If you look at a Avon 5.4m searider you will see the console is offset that means less of an offset for the engine. I would guess you would want about 3/4inch to 1 inch off set but without seeing the boat dont take my word for it!!!!
