Motor Position @ Transom

The guy who installed my motor did not installed it at the center intensionaly, he shifted it 2inches to he right. After noticing that my boat is pron to sevear chinwlking at midspeeds, now I am considering postioning the motor exectaly at center position.

What do you guys think, could I reduce some of the walking problem by doing so ?

Is that a 'Driver'...440 or 500, or 510, or 560?

Off-setting the motor souldn't induce chine walking.

it is very similar to "driver" boats but when I boat it, it had a "selva racing team" sticker on the back, and "Javelin" stiker alongside

2" seems a bit too much, i would have thought an inch ofset ample, but still wouldnt induce chinewalking.......
