Prop Strut Alignment

Today I was putting in a new steering cable in my 01 X30 and when aligning the steering wheel I noticed the rudder was about 1" to the left of the center of the prop shaft when looking from the rear. I had my buddy who is a long time Malibu mechanic look at it and said that usually means a bent prop strut. After doing some research on here I came accross a thread that said that the rudders are usually offset about 3/4 to 1" to the port side. Is this true?
The prop strut doesnt look bent, there are no vibrations to speak of while driving and there is no damage to the prop strut. I bought the boat used and have never hit anything with it. Would just like to get some input on the rudder alignment before I go looking for a new prop strut.
