I did buy a full skirt and yes there is a boulder or two out on our rivers. This year I'm just getting used to the Marvel as it's the first kayak I've ever spent much time in. I'm staying to the lakes which can get interesting with 30-35 mph winds that constantly shift direction. So far I'm impressed with the speed, stability and maneuverability of this craft. It outdoes my kayaking buddy's Pungo 120 in all of those areas. She says the Pungo's seat is more comfortable (and it is very nice) but no, it's not. I'm planning on getting some lessons, a bilge pump and being much more adventurous next year.
As far as your Ultimate goes, here's a link to a vid of some crazy guy going down Lava Falls in a regular canoe. The Colorado River uses a 1-10 designation as opposed to the regular class I-V because it can get really crazy. Lava Falls is rated 8-10 depending on the flow. If this canoe can make it through that, I would think the Ultimate would do it. Again, it would depend a great deal on the skill and sanity level of the person sitting in there. Hope it's okay to post a youtube link here.
Have a great day,
