West also carries a 6W and a 18W version of the panel. You might squeak by witht the 6W version provided your batteries are not significantly over 100Amps AND your boat is reasonable water tight. You can connect to just one battery if you have a combiner switch that you can place on "both". The 6W panel can't generate enough voltage to harm your batteries but the larger panel would need a charge controller.
