    I notice the groan while making sharp turns while boat is cruising. No noise is made when motor is off. Seems more noticeable when making the the turns with diverter pointed up.

    Boat is 8yrs old. Bought it used a few yrs ago. I assume it is the original cable.

    I would look toward the drive train, u joints, coupler, pump bearings ect.
