Rudder/Tiller Arm

I have a question about the steering connection to the rudder tiller arm. I was adding grease to the rudder box and noticed the bolt connecting the steering cable to the tiller arm was loose. I could spin the bolt freely. Is this correct? Or should this bolt be snug/tight?

On my 2005 PS197, both steering cable/rudder arm bolts & nylon locking nuts are snug...the bolts do not spin/rotate by hand. However, the bolts/nuts are not too tight to prevent the bolts/rudder arm to swivel as necessary when the steering wheel is turned...mac
