Straight and Level Flight (Not)

During a long cross country I noticed my plane goes to the left with wings straight and level. Also, the ball is not centered. Is it as simple as a rudder tab or should I locate a good rigging A&P? Annual is coming up next month.

    Press the rudder pedal just enough to center the ball. If you only pushed the rudder pedal in a small amount, the tab will do. Large amount? Have your mechanic check rigging.
