For some reason last weekend the steering on the boat was very hard during turns with engine power.  Never noticed this before and am wondering if there is a simple fix.  Seems ok at high and low speeds but when I turn to recover a skier that has fallen it is very difficult to return the wheel to straight after making the turn.  Am at around 2500 rpm in the turn and when I try to get back straight it is very heavy to turn.  The boat is a Chris Craft Sundeck 262 with a Volvo I/O.
