The little fin is an anode to fight corrosion and when adjusted right it fights prop torque.
Your problem is most likely dirty carbs.When outboards sit alot they get gummed up.If a little choke helps then it is starving.I believe you also have 2 or three fuel pumps as well that could also be gummed up.
I you want to talk to the real experts try Johns Old Mercury Web Site.Great forum and excellent links.You need to be sure the whole system is clean or it will continue to foul things up.
