Best Solar System for 2001 19' Bambi

I am boon docking for duck season in Northern California and would like to install solar so that I don't have to use my generator as often.
I would like to hear from those who have installed on similar size as to the best size and should I go with 6V as compared to 12V batteries for greater amp storage?

While it's a little more work than mounted panels, we've been using a 120 watt portable panel successfully for years. We changed out all the lights to LED, use a catalytic heater to take the chill off at night before bed, then first thing in the morning. We still have the standard group 24 deep cells and the batteries have always outlasted our water and gray tank capacities...
