hard steering

the steering on my 1 yr old 20' Sweetwater w/50hp 4 stroke Merc has become very stiff even binding up sometimes

I was told to check the bolt on the steering arm to make sure the washers are loose , I did and they are as they are supposed to be .

what else can I do to correct this problem ?

    If only 1 year old, I'd be taking it right back to the dealer to get them to look/fix it. I believe you have a 5 year warranty.

    @scjackson ... your dealer should fix this for you and make sure there's not a stripped nut or something.
