    As my boat lives on a mooring, I am looking to install a solar panel to keep the batteries topped off should the bilge pump get active for some reason. My plan (unless convinced otherwise) is to install a 50-watt panel, which I think should be enough given my limited purpose, run it through a charge controller and on to the battery. Does anyone have any recommendations/sources on cost-efficient panels and controllers? Thanks much,
    Josh
