Original solar panel damaged, what to replace it with?

The solar panel that came with my Tradewinds 375 when it was new was damaged sometime before I bought it. It's used to charge the engine batteries. What panel should I replace it with?

That solar panel is so small it's only a trickle charger to maintain the fully charged batteries . It does not charge a drawn down battery when in storage. The small amount of current draw on the control systems is its purpose . For me during long term storage a 110 v battery tender cheaper and keeps batteries topped up without any over charge .
