You might be able to keep with her, if you're a strong paddler. The lines of those Deltas don't make them particularly fast, but, the slick and stiff hulls do help.

You might consider Dagger Alchemy, 1 small, 1 large. It's a "moving water" / touring style hybrid. I've got a Wavesport Ethos (same class as the Rogue, XP10). I recently had it on a class II+ with a bit of III, and, I kept thinking my Alchemy would have been fine, there, if a bit less manuverable. Some II/III whitewater, though, would definitely leave the Ethos with the advantage. On flat water or lazy rivers, the Alchemy would smoke the crossovers, as well as the Deltas you listed. Alchemy would allow for good skill building, as well.
