Was the old rudder particularly stiff? Perhaps this is normal for that boat, but the bad rudder was so messed up it wouldn't turn freely. I don't know the boat, so I can't say, but it is an possible explanation.
I know a lot of boats that you cannot let go of the wheel under power, without them going all walkabout.
