FL or Boatman into the wind?

I'm looking to complete a bag for a friend who throws only understable fairway drivers like XL and River. Playing on courses which are often windy, and having watched the previous either turn and burn (XL), or hover and fall flat (River), I have a brand new FL (Star) and a Boatman (VIP) I've acquired that I'm willing to give up. Which would be the better complement to an intermediate, casual chucker?

173 Boatman
171 FL

He throws a River about 300 at his best.

Boatman is a sweet discs but I would probably agree on the FL, boatman is going to be tad more over stable, FL rim is a tad lighter and rim is a bit smaller if I'm not mistaken

I hated the Star FL that I had, it was a flippy POS, it flew like a retarded TeeBird. I'd say Boatman if you're looking for a newbish headwind driver. A Star TeeBird might be another good choice.
