I used to run rivers with a Wenonah Odyssey which has a completely straight keel line and I hated that boat.

A tripper with some rocker can be made to go straight on lakes, but a straight boat is very hard to turn much less go sideways on a river.

All trippers have some compromises. The question was up to Class III rapids.
