When my 35 MK I was doing that it was because the upper bearing had too much slop. I made a new bearing and fixed it.

Subject: Stus-List 35-3 emergency helm flex

I recently purchased my first C&C, a 1984 35-3 here in Southern California. 
As I was motoring from marina del Rey to her new home port I noticed the emergency tiller stub flexing slightly as we took swell to the beam.
I am wondering if this is normal and if not the potential causes and fixes. 
If anyone has experienced this please let me know. 
Thank you.
