A single 40 watt Kyocera panel would allow you to run a Koolatron or something similar on the hook while keeping your existing batteries happy. With your existing set-up, it's probably prudent to keep your batteries a touch oversized anyway to reduce deep cycles, and to consider AGMs to reduce testing and filling due to the fact that it will get hot on board in the summer.
