Charge Controller and batteries for solar panel

I am installing 4 new Kyocera 140kw panels on my 46" Beneteau. Going with either a Outback or Morningstar 60amp controller. Looking for tips on installation. Do I need breakers and where do they get installed? Also what is best position for controller? Closer to the panels or the battery bank?

Also putting in new battery bank. 4 4D AGM batteries for the house. Any suggestions on which batteries to go with?
