WW says:

I agree that the most probable cause is a worn rudder bearing either at the top or, more likely, the bottom of the rudder post where it meets the skeg.

First possibility is something fouling the propellor - go down the weed hatch. If clean, then it may be a worn bearing at the bottom of the rudder post - we had this recently and it was cured by inserting a lead washer - but the boat had to be out of the water to do it.
