How many batteries?

We use DC27 marine deep cell batteries on our solar panels we have a 105 watt system and were recently gifted a 400 watt wind generator. Because we want to keep adding to our system we have purchased a 10,000 watt charge controller.
How many batteries do I need to purchase to get full use out of the 400 watt wind generator and my 105 watts from solar?

    My first thought:
    Sell it all, and take the money, and get a 250W panel, a Sunsaver MPPT 15A charge controller and 2, 6V-200ah golf cart batteries
     That 10Kw charge controller is way too much beast.
    Wind power is highly overrated - unless you have to tie your hat on EVERY time you go outdoors

    I would like to hear more about your perception of your future needs - and what you have been doing up to this point.
    It is very difficult to offer good advice without knowing what your needs are.
