The 13' boat is a lot narrower than MBB's guide models (48" I believe). That would be narrower than any Hyde or Clack out there. The wider boat will buy you a lot of stability and storage (nice for clients). The advantages of wood over glass are many and are discussed at length on the MBB board. I've been in and out of a lot of boats, big and small, and my vote would be to err on the big side, especially where clients are concerned. However, any way you go, you can't go wrong with those boats. For having an angler in the rear of the boat, you'll want to make sure that the hull can support that and still keep water flowing under the stern and not hitting the rear panel. Some hulls have more flotation in the rear and are built for fore and aft anglers, some hulls have less flotation in the rear and are meant for two anglers up front pulling plugs. Some small boats only work well with one angler up front. Just my 2 cents.
