2005 Xstar Tower squeaks

I have a 2005 xstar, for a year now, and noticed the tower has a lot of sway and shake to it. I assume the movement is normal but just as of lately the port side has had an awful like ticking squeal when we hit rougher water, mostly turbulent water from other boats. Not sure if that's normal but it hasn't done it before and I've also made sure all the Allen heads are tight and screwed in. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Did you check the 4 bolts that hold it to the hull? I just had to tighten mine.

There are some days that I can hear the wires tapping or scraping. It seems random when they do it.
