I have a 1989 Bayliner Capri with an OMC Cobra 2.3L engine. It has very loose steering when going at slower speeds. Sways from left to right without anyone moving the wheel. Very hard to guide straight when driving slow. Any ideas on what we can do to fix this?

Hello, you need to determine if the cable is stretched or there is play in the gimbal housing. Does it feel like the drive is loose or is the slop in the steering wheel? Cool
