Hard steering

Bought a used pontoon boat late last summer. The steering is very tight. Is there any type of adjustment for the steering ?

Could be a number of issues. Steering cables dry out after a few years - check to see if it has lube (disconnect it from the motor and try to turn it - should give you a clue). Check for lubrication at the outboard bracket as well (when you're disconnected, try to move the engine by hand). Check for any binding that could be occurring also. This should get you started towards identifying the culprit area.
