Here's a long answer to your short question:
For runs like Kermit's on CC (do we have to rename the run since Kermit's is gone?) I would lean towards the semi planning riverrunner/creeker variety. A full displacement hull mainly gives you an advantage glancing off of rocks on low volume steep creeks or landing large drops and Kermit's doesn't fit either bill. However, esp. as the water comes up, you'll gain some boat control advantage from the edge. The advantage is great enough that many people are using these types of boats for everything now - i.e. Stomper, Karma, etc.
In terms of specific boats, I'm also in the market now that my Nomad cracked and my warranty was denied. Cracked is the operative word for me now. I've been boating Confluence Watersports boats (Dagger and Wavesport) for a long time now, but I'm fed up with playing warranty roulette. It seems very arbitrary, even to the dealers, what boats get warrantied when your boat inevitably cracks (and if you boat CC a lot, it will). If anything, Wavesport and Dagger durability has gone down since I first started boating 10 years ago and they certainly aren't putting any effort into improving the quality.
On that basis, and the fact that there are a myriad of quality creekboat designs out there now, I'm planning on switching brands. My short list is the Prijon Pure or Zet based on them building more durable boats. I'm also considering Jackson based on their no-bullshit warranty policy, even though they're just as inclined to break. I've heard nothing but good things about Fluid warranties as well, and people seem to like their hull designs, but I have some residual prejudice regarding the quality of their outfitting.
