What panel depends on your situation / boat / installation preference. The flexible panels like Solbian and Sunware are going to produce a lot less than a fixed panel (many manufacturers).
Also check the warranties. Solar panels can have manufacturing defects like anything else. My Sunware panels all failed within 18 months (delaminated), but they replaced all of them, no questions asked. The replacements have been fine for the last 3 years.
Also check the regulator for interference with other electrical system components (some are quite noisy) and the match with your batteries charge regimen.

THE ONLY REASON EVERYTHING ISN'T RUN ON SOLAR POWER IS THAT EXXON DOESN'T OWN THE SUN
