If you are not then I genuinely do not believe your problem lies with your consoles position it certainly shouldn't affect yaw that much.
Your transom looks poor and without doubt your engine is in the wrong position and I agree with rib teccie that your very poorly blocked flooding hull outlet may not be waterproof so you may be enjoying some free surface effect.
Are you absolutely sure that your transom is dry and solid, because if its flexing that gives you all sorts of handling issues.
I am fairly sure your hull was a deluxe by the way. The last 5.4 we did was very well set up I will try and post some pics of the engine /transom.
I'm taking the 5.4 out soon if you want to come down to Southampton I'll take you out and show you what a well set up 5.4 drives like
what a transom should look like before the engine goes on
note the surplus holes are sealed and filled using epoxy putty
