Default 70 johnson pulls to one side

I have a 70 johnson on a 17' sea nymph that seems to pull to the right when running at higher speeds, any ideas?

Do you have an adjustable tab just above the prop to adjust??

Now that you say that I think there is, I have to go out and look and then figure out how it works. Thanks

What you are experiencingis prop torque.. move the trailing edge of the tab to the left to compensate for the torque of the prop...
