Stiff steering

After 5 years of easy steering, turning the wheel now is a physical workout. We have lubricated the chain, the rudder post, dove under the boat to check for a rope or wire jammed in the rudder/hull, cant find anything binding. it feels like the wheel brake is on, but it is not. This a 2006 Bavaria 37 Cruiser.
any suggestions? Thanks
