Looking for best option

Looking for a boat that will run a medium to sometimes fast flowing river with class I - II and occasionally III (when I feel more confident) rapids. Any suggestions what I should be looking at?

Pyranha Burn or Nano, Wavesport Diesel, Dagger Mamba, Jackson Hero or possibly a Fun, Liquid Logic Remix....... there are many other options out there are well.

If you are indeed mainly sticking to the easier rapids that much, I would say go for the shorter and more nimble/playful Nano -- it'll make things more fun, but still probably be more roomy/comfy inside and more forgiving that river running playboats.
The other boats you mention would maybe be a bit steadier and a bit faster for the flat water, but not as fun and not as versatile in general.
