Steering is Locked up on 2008 x2

Hey guys put my boat in the water the other day went to turn the steering wheel and it seems to be locked up/seized up..
I looked at it alittle bit today trying to get it loose greasing it, but I'm pretty sure I just need to run a whole new cable. Just figured I'd see if anybody else has had this problem, and if there's anyway to fix it before I buy a new cable.

Thanks,
Brandon

Is there anything blocking the travel of the rudder?

No there isn't anything blocking it..
If I try to turn the steering wheel there isn't but about 4-6inches of play in the wheel and the rudder doesn't budge, why I'm thinking it's the cable

Disconnect the cable at the rudder and try again (you'll have to do this anyway if it is the cable). If the steering wheel moves freely the issue is with the rudder, if not you'll confirm it's with the rack/cable.
