lifeline solar

does anyone have any experience with a lifeline solar battery setup?i bought a concorde pvx-2580l 12 volt 258ah agm battery and a morningstar controler,i already have a few puny solar panels but expect to get more and better ones,my main goal is to have a decent fan to make life aboard more livable and just maybe later on some sort of refrigiration,i haven't installed anything on the boat yet but i've been running a automobile radiator fan off the battery alone to get an idea of what its capibilities are [those are pretty powerful fans]so far its been running for 24 hours without any external power,how many watts of solar will i need?btw this system will be completely separate from the boat's regular power usage
