steering wheel turns to right

I have a 125 US Marine Power Force motor on my boat. When i am on the water, if i let the steering wheel go, it will spin to the right all the way til it stops. Have had someone say the motor is not centered and someone said the fin is missing on the lower unit. I am stupid when it comes to this. Can someone help please.

Look on the lower unit. There should be an adjustable skeg to help offset the props natural torque.
Looks like a sharks fin mounted on a round plate.
Most have a center bolt and three screws holding it in place. Just loose them and turn it.
Which way? I forget. Just play with it, it's going to do one of two things get worst or better. Easy enough to move it the other way if it does not get better.

What year is it? On older models the adjustment is the exhaust snout.

It's the fin the guy in this picture is adjusting. If yours is missing or broken off they are relatively inexpensive and easy to replace so it's not the end of the world.
