I had this problem (as Dirk says you get used to it) with my Sea Star steering.
Pete is right, adjust the anode/skeg to neutralise it, that is what it there for. When you are happy with the setting punch a mark on the gear box housing in line with the marker on the skeg, so you can fit next years at the same angle.
The Sea Star steering pump seems not to be a positive displacement unit, it is more like a car power steering pump or torque converter, therefore you will have some creep, and you keep turning the wheel to offset the torque reaction from the prop if the skeg is not compensating for it.
