Recommendations for Solar Panel and Controller

I'm thinking about upgrading my older solar panels and controller on my 35' sailboat, (2 - 80 Watt MBF80 Solar Panels, Xantrex C12 12 amp Solar Charge Controller), and I'm curious if folks here recommend any specific brands today.

Thanks..

Jason

I have just installed 2 250w Kyocera panels and a Blue Sky MMPT regulator for each and it works great!
I'm no expert, just my 2 cents worth.
