console position

hi peeps, just got back in from fitting the engine to the sr4, next job is fitting the console but earlier today i had a look at a couple of ribs (old sr4 and newer 4.7) and noticed the consoles were slightly off centre, i think this is something to do with torque?, so is there some sort of ancient mystical formula to work out how far off centre and which side? or am i just complicating things. the boat concerned is a 1986 4m searider with a 1994 50hp 3 cyl 2 stroke mercury which i have centred on the transom, any help or suggestions would be awesome, cheers

I think the offset on original boats was to allow for someone laying down to one side. Just done mine dead central....

Others will be along soon to help with more info...
