Very protected waters, but subject to the occasional mega yacht wake that will jump over the gunnel of my 12' aluminum skiff and scare the living daylights out of all aboard as we each grab a bailing bucket and tighten our life jackets.
Just a suggestion, but the biggest and deepest 12' OB skiff is not going to be the most seaworthy.
Even on my 23', one ton sail boat, I have to be VERY careful of how she hits waves and wakes, or else I wear them on my lap. Are you planning on cartopping or trailering, or will it instead spend weeks or more in the water. If moving it over land will be a rare occasion than something even larger will open up whole new worlds.
The right choice will depend on a combination of your needs, your budget, available materials, time, skills, workspace, how long you intend to keep it, importance of looks, speed, economy and resale value, tools, and ability to transport. If it will live upside down on the beach, and you forego plywood, you might consider double planking the cross planked bottom with a mastic between the overlapping plank runs. When length is a limitation you'll nearly always do better with a pram-bow or garvey design. This Jim Michalak 12 footer is pretty big and deep, but with all that rocker, she is not really an outboard skiff.
If you are going to go through the trouble of building a plank on frame boat than it would make little sense not to build it to last and take care of it.

Amazingly it will plane with only 10 hp even when so heavily loaded that both the transom and forefoot are immersed (if the designer is not being too boastful, which Atkin usually isn't). If the boat had a lot of freeboard the wind might overpower the motor and push the boat in undesirable directions. We have been a Suzuki dealer for over 10 years, Mercury dealer for 35 years and OMC for over 35 years. With a loop scavenged or 4 stroke engine it could easily get better than 10 mpg while on plane (assuming roughly 1 gph and 15 mph at wot). This item is probably a wet ride in a chop but the important thing is it should be able to safely make headway should the pilot desire to make a run for cover. Stop in or give us call and let us get you set up for this summer.Carolina SkiffA  has added two new series of boats to their inventory. While this may seem out of reach a bare bones workboat style version could be made for cheaper than a jet ski. It will be more time consuming than a plywood flat iron skiff, but easier than normal carvel planking and it does not require epoxy anywhere.
