I have offset mine, from memory it is either 38mm or 55mm I would have to measure it to confirm. Although I have many haven't so I think you will get about a 50/50 split! With it offset I found it a bit less inclined to chine walk as easily
As per height, mine is about 1" above the keel at mid trim. I have moved it about a bit and I found higher was more stable but would cavitate a bit especially in frothy water, lower had more grip but was less stable. When I rig my new one I will go around these again and drill it so that the engine at its lowest setting is level with the cav plate. Not scientific and I am sure others have other settings!
