What is the benefit of them being offset? Or the downside to them on the same side?

Worm style clamps generally don't provide a perfect 360° seal. You put the screw on opposite sides to remedy that. Honestly though, I've installed hundreds if not thousands of single worm clamps on cars and have never had a leaking issue due to the clamp.

I believe so. Because I remember the other sheet showed everything on the other boat with the 300 including the Lowrance HDS live.
