Boat engine is making a ticking sound when it's off

I have a deck boat with an inboard/outboard motor. When the engine is off it's making a ticking noise. The battery isn't dead and it will crank fine. Why is it making the noise? Does it mean bad things are happening? (dead battery on the way, starter going out, etc..)
