Having fished out of a Headhunter II, it is really tight for two casters. Plan on one of you being on the oars at all times, or use the boat to get to wading spots so that you can both fish. Rowing should not be much of problem, launching is the draw back with most boats.
You may also want to look at inflatables. The two person rigs will weigh about the same as two person drift boats and I find they take much less maintenance.
They don't have sports car like rowing, however they still row pretty easily. They also take "crashes" into rocks much easier than fiberglass. Which might be important to someone learning how to row on new water.
PS I have a nearly complete two person pontoon for sale, which should weigh-in at around 140-150 lbs when compete. If your interested, just let me know.
