I have a 22' pontoon with 60hp outboard motor. The steering is pretty stiff on it.
If you're turning, it seems to be OK, but if you're just driving across the lake, and want to make small adjustments to your direction, it's like it is stuck. You have to jerk it to get it to turn.
Seems to be in the steering wheel or in that general area and not in the cylinders back by the motors.
Any ideas what to look for?

Could be your steering box behind the steering wheel. Try hitting it with a grease gun .

Thanks for the suggestion about the steering box. I'll give that a try
