I grew up on Nocona in a 12' V-Bottom boat. Rowed it from about the time I was 10 or so till maybe 14 when I got a little 6 horse for it. Even into college, having a bass boat, I'd still find myself fishing out of it. I'd say about 95% of the time you'd be fine on Nocona, it'll just be slow going if you're out in the middle and there's more than a good chop. Especially if you're trying to go perpendicular to it.
Just need to know your limits. The more you put in it, the lower it's going to sit, and the higher you get the easier it's going to be to dip a edge into the water. Mine didn't have a deck, I just stood in the bottom of it. It's been to Amon Carter, and Arrowhead as well.
IMO they're very capable boats, you just need to watch your surroundings, and be aware of the wind and weather. That away you can put your focus towards areas where you'll be able to fish comfortably, and not fight to stay anchored, or worry about waves coming over the side. If you went to Nocona, or any of the smaller lakes around, on a weekday, you're liable to have the whole lake to your self. That's when I'd take it out.
