The OP is getting a 220 amp hour battery which can supply the night half of the 50 amps per 24 hours.

With 330 watts of solar he has more than enough to run the freezer all day and still charge up the 220 amp hour batt.

Theres no use going crazy about it apart from connections the whloe solar instalation is maintenance free. Stick them in any manner he likes that gets sun for his area.

In the trade wind areas with my configuration I found that the early mornings the big problem. So I got a small 70 watt panel and prop it up on deck against the base of the mast at 45 degrees. It grabs the sun from sun-up because the wind is always east... or NE or SE.
