how much play in cables. for stearing

I have a 33 foot Islander, and it has about 1 inch of play in the steering at the wheal. When I inspect the cables they are just a little loose. Should there be any play at all.
On another note she has a hard time being steered via an auto pilot. It wants to snake back and for the and all the gain or lack of it only makes it snake faster or slower. Could this be a result of my ruder having some play.
