Solar Charger for Trolling Battery

As summer moves in, we'll be doing more fishing early in the morning and late in the evening. I wanted a way to add a little power back to the trolling battery while the boat was on the trailer or at the dock during the heat of the day. We had added one of these to the starting battery on the pontoon boat years ago, and it made a huge difference to that and the battery was always ready to go. 

This solar panel attaches with suction cups, is waterproof, and has a cable that easily leads to and clamps on the trolling battery posts under the rear hatch.
