Hi just interested in the mounting of an outboard motor?

My mate just bought a new 429 SeaJay and has a 40hp tohatsu tiller. The motor is sprayin water back at the boat and pulls to the left.

Just wondering what could cause this? Originally i thought motor height??

Suggestions please?

quite possibly, maybe lift it up a hole, or lean over the back and see where the spray is coming from, the pulling is more than likely the little fin just above the prop, it needs to be adjusted for cruise speed so there is no "pull" do it a bit at a time, and remember you are steering the motor, not the boat with it!
