On most boats it depends on which way your turning. Look at your prop & rudder from the rear, notice the rudder is not in the center. It's off to counter the effect of your spinning prop.
If your boat has a prop that spins one way, then usually it's easy to turn right, a bit hard to turn left (due to the forces put on the face of the rudder by the prop).
Boats with props that spin the opposite direction will be reversed, harder to turn one direction, easier the other.
Regardless of which way your prop spins though, you should not need both hands to turn both ways.
