On reading my post, I wasn't clear, the issue is one of the steering needing to be turned very slowly all the time to get the desired affect,(run straight and true) my first thought is that there is a seal weeping pressure slowing in the ram.
But I'm new to oil steering so could be wrong. My old searider (telelflex) would pull to the left up to a point,if you kept trimming out too far, it would eventually pull to the right? trimmed just right you could take your hands of the wheel. It was a good way to tell if the thing was trimmed right.
If you are out on Sat, get the boat on the plane running straight, then put your hand in a set position on the wheel, Things I think, should remain constant.
On mine your would find in a short space of time that your hand would be moving round and you would need to take another bite at it....
My concern is the accident( if your aware of it ) on Loch Lomond where a father and daughter died because of sudden and catostrophic steering failure.

I'm out tomorrow so I'll make a point of watching out for it veering off and I'll post back tomorrow night.
