My new to me 2008 X-15 steering after turning while under power if very hard to go back straight. My wife has to stop the boat while I am boarding so we can turn around.. Dealer says it needs a new steering cable but a friend thinks it is the rudder. Can I get some help

Unhook the rudder from the cable and give it a try.

If it is only hard to steer while under load then I would suspect rudder & box. Stiff steering at all times would be the cable.

Had the same issue:

I'm not familiar with your model, but save time and money by checking to see if it needs a shot of grease!
