do I need?
do I need a charge regulator
Some more details would help zero in on a more specific answer (a lot of your usage is lighting
how much of this is LED? What is your cruising location and time of year?), but somewhere around 80w would be my estimation.
Yes you would need a regulator with this size panel, but they are not expensive or difficult to install.
