I've fished out of Frontier for several years, mainly freshwater. I got it during the drought when all the boat ramps were out of the water. I like to stand and pitch brush. So I needed something stable. The Frontier is kind of heavy and I found it a chore to paddle in the wind. With the scupper plugs out, water will push back in. Its common for me to have 1/2 of water in the back of the boat. Not enough to get me wet though. I fish a lot of windy early spring days and added a bow mount TM with foot control to help position the boat. It really changed the functionality. I can stand fish and control the boat all at the same time. I no longer fight the boat and wind to get into position. With TM and battery, it is crazy heavy though. I end up carrying everything separately to the water. Even with Nucanoe cart, its just to much.
I have fished two people in the Frontier. Myself and elderly father. We both weight about 200 lbs. Its surprisingly stable. I've had it out on Lake Austin while standing and fishing. I just keep an eye out for wake boats and sit down when they throw a tsunami. The Frontier just bobs around. If I was buying again, I would be torn between the Frontier with TM and getting a peddle boat.
