I have a Montauk with a 90 horse and I noticed this weekend that the boat wants to pull to the right under power. How is this best corrected?

Trim the motor up higher.

If that puts the bow too high, adjust the motor trim tab so that its leading edge is more to port (left) and/or its trailing edge more to starboard (right).

The motor trim tab is right behind the propeller and attached to the cavatation plate. I've had these come loose, so check there first.

You'll almost always get pull at slow speeds. Installing No-Feedback steering will help too.
