Hey everyone. My steering is sticking when the wheel is turned hard to the left. It is not that big of a deal it just takes so fighting to get it out of there. Any ideas on what i need to do. I am sure it is just an easy lube job.

You can reach it with only removing the rear center floor section. Give it a shot of grease and see if that helps. In all honesty, the cable is likely as old as the boat (and I say that in a kind way) and I'd seriously consider replacing the cable.
