Steering is really tight 2004 19ft hurricane

I purchased this boat used about 10 months ago.  It's progressively gotten harder and harder to turn the steering wheel. I literally have to put some muscle into it.  Also there is a good 3-4 inches of play in the steering wheel before the motor even turns.  I checked the fluid and it's full; I don't see any leaks. 

Any idea what could be wrong?
