Check for loose motor mounts and/or alignment of drive shaft? Something's moved/changed.

One thing that might do it is water intrusion in the rudder that causes asymmetric swelling. It does not take much difference to cause the pulling effect. It happened to me the first year. I drained the rudder over the winter then sealed an opened seam. Next Spring, no more pull, and it never came back.

Check it when you haul.
