Solar charge for 12V battery on a Boat

So this is my boat..

And was looking into getting one of these solar panel chargers to charge my trolling battery while I'm out on the water.

1. Has anyone ever used one of these or are currently using one? If so, which model do you have?
2. In the picture of my boat.. if you're looking at the motor from inside the boat, there are 2 compartments on both sides for batteries. They have a lid that basically lifts up to access the batteries... I'm thinking about putting a panel on each side under some hard clear plastic so that it can charge and I can still work around on those compartment doors.

However, I'm not exactly sure how to modify these doors to accommodate the panel and then enclose and make it weather proof, etc...

Hoping someone has some ideas or could share any suggestions, thanks!
