There also seems to be no mention of engine trim anywhere. Were you travelling at speed with the engine trimmed in or out going into and coming out of the turn?

With regard to the steering, the two occasions I can readily remember were when I've been going at a reasonable speed and gone into a turn. Maybe 20 knots or so. The boat is out of the water at the moment having some covers made, so I shall have to wait a few days before working out exactly when it happens and how speed sensitive it is. There is however a fairly tight turn in the steering cable where it comes up from the bilge to the engine which may not be helping.

As far as trim goes, I'd say it's probably been trimmed in when I've done the turns.
