The propeller centerline is off-set from the aircraft centerline. What could the reason for that be?

Is the prop off-set or the nose weel?

Has it to do with gyroscopic effects of the turning propeller and the resulting forces on the aircraft?

In a single engine prop aircraft the combination of torque and propwash hitting the vertical stabiliser tends to yaw the aircraft. This is normally dealt with by a slight offset of the fin, or in more powerful aircraft by a rudder trim system. Offset thrust line can also be used but is less common. Have a look at P-factor.

I guess that as a very first post PAA is unaware of the protocols here - only one of which is the 24hr rule, which applies to the poster of the pic who is the only one allowed to confirm or deny the id. Only after that may the winner declare OH.

Thus I will remain silent on the matter until tomorrow morning when I will confirm or reject the answer as appropriate.
