1989 Sea Ray bowrider hydraulic steering problem

I just purchased a 1989 Sea Ray 18'8" bowrider that has hydraulic steering. There is quite a bit of play in the system and I would like to know how I should try to fix it and what type of fluid should I use.

On the Steering Rack, you have a little bit of adjustment on the cable. The Fluid is just a marine grade power steering fluid. You might also want to check and make sure that everything is tight, that all the bolts are in place and such.
