Crossover/Touring boats?

I am looking into buying a crossover/touring boat for overnight/multiday trips, and would like something that has lots of storage room, but will still be able to negotiate III+/IV-.

Some options I have been looking at include:

Jackson - Journey and Rogue

Liquid Logic - Remix XP

Pyranha - Fusion

Dagger - Approach

There were also a few others that were more touring oriented. These seemed to have more storage, but I am guessing are less stable in whitewater.

Dagger - Blackwater

Riot - Edge

Necky - Manitou

Prijon - Yukon

Wilderness Expeditions - Tsunami

I was hoping to get some input from boaters who have paddled these boats, including how they handle when fully loaded.

Also, any other options I missed.

Thanks for any and all responses.

prijon yukon

The prijon yukon is awsome. Plenty of storage - you can get 2 50cal poop cans in for a 2 week grand trip. The fish form hull is lively and maneuvers well. Stable as Gibralter. Ran the Dolores Mcphee to Hite - portaged at Snaggletooth but Stateline was a blast. Cat no Problem. This boat will take you any where. Rides nice on lake water too.

Logan you have seen my Remix. I would highly suggest it for many reasons. It is an awesome boat. Next time I am out you are more then welcome to try it out. Seriously go with the liquidlogic on this one.

Also it comes in 2 sizes which is great. Mine is a 9 which I can shove an easy couple weeks of gear in. Compression dry bags and wildwasser bags for the nose are good things to have for ease of packing.
