I have newly acquired 1997 Maxum (it is registered as Bayliner) model 1952 cuddy. Power is Mercruiser 3.0 with Alpha 1 Gen II drive. The problem is very hard steering. It does not have power steering. Steering wheel tuns lock to lock fairly easily with engine off or at idle, so I am assuming that cable is ok. Under load it is a bear, at least for me who is used to power steering. I am wondering what it takes to retrofit power steering to this set-up. A little expensive, or very expensive? Any other way to get serious improvement in load and feedback on the steering wheel? Thanks much.
