Small solar panel for auxiliary battery recommendation

Iím looking for a recommendation for a small solar panel, preferably rail mounted to charge a 12v battery mounted on my upper deck used to run a dinghy lifting crane. The crane is used a few times a week and doesnít run more than 2 minutes to launch or retrieve the dink.

Battery to battery charger via house bank.
Sorry, the solar idea is good, until you need power more often, than planned.
Not a bad idea, but without plan B and C, you will fall short.

I was able to fish cable to the crane. Problem solved.

I hope you mean the "Crane Battery."
