clicking sound (starting)

Hello, I have a boat that just doesn't want to start. What basically happens when I turn the ignition to the start position is that I here a constantly clicking sound. Sometimes the drive assemly will turn alittle bite and then stop and then the constanly clicking sound will start but usually I just hear that annoying constant clicking sound. I believe that that constant sound has to do with the solenoid switch constantly switching on and off but don't know for sure. I think I need a new solenoid switch. What do you pros think about this and what this could be. Thanks alot for the help. I appreciate this alot .

Make sure that the battery is good and full charge. See if you cant get a rebuilt starter for it.
