Prop Shaft Offset

We're having a debate on the Peaaron 323 owners site. Two boats of a similar vintage (late 70s), one has a prop shaft offset to port, the other to starboard. The latter has just had an engine repower.

My question is, how is the shaft offset typically managed? Is this something which is permanently molded into the hull, or can the offset me made by shifting the engine on its mounts, and adjusting the position of the shaft strut? Is it possible that during the repower the yard offset the prop shaft incorrectly?
