Re: Very squeaky steering
I would suggest that you may have a bearing that needs lubrication if not replacement. Otherwise, there could be a place where the worm gear is attached (bolted?) to the boat that has worn slightly and the two pieces of the worm gear are no longer mated correctly. A small shim could fix this.
