12-13' should be more than adequate if you are hunting in the islands..if you are hunting in areas that still have a few feet of water on a low tide, then you may want to run more..
i go by the rule of thumb that the biggest tide swings out there are usually about a total of 10feet...and that is only once in a great while...add a few feet to that and you should be covered.
good luck down there!
