    Strange squeaking noise when turning at speed! Help

    ok When going moderatly fast (1/4 to half throttle) and I turn left or right, I hear this squeaking/ rubbing noise... I cant figure out what it is. Only does it at moderate or faster speeds. Staight no noise, low speed turns no noise.. What could it be. I have riva stage one, and rr thru hull.
