could this be the cause?

My Yamaha 60FET , has an anode under the cavitation plate that can be adjusted, Pic below - its at a slightly funny angle though, ie:not dead straight - could this be the cause of my boat leaning to her port side? any ideas greatly appreciated - thanks

I do have dolefins installed and they look fine not bent or misaligned

No the offset angle is to counteract any bias in the helm. If you notice the helm is easier to turn in one direction than the other when on the plane, then the trim tab you've shown is the adjustment for that. Mine was allways pulling to the left so I adjusted the tab to starboard and it no longer pulls to the left and is just luvvverly.

Any leaning you have will be from either an off centre load in the boat or prop torque. Easy way to find out is if you back the throttle off does it come flat? if so then you have prop torque.

Bear in mind that wind and waves also have an effect, although only on certain headings.

When under way, your boat will lean onto the side the wind is coming from. So take that into account too.

Your trim position (power trim that is) will affect the way the boat runs enormously, trim in too far, and it will lean over to port (with a RHR prop, which I'm sure you'll have).

Trim it out a little, and it may level up a bit.

Just thought I'd add, this effect is far more pronounced if your boat has a spray rail design that's substantially horrizontal, ie, like a Ring and as apposed to a Revenger.
