Cal 30 '68 vs Catalina 27 '79 comparison please give feedback

Hello all, since getting into sailing I have been reading a lot esp on this forum. Here is a question for all you seasoned sailors:

I am looking at getting a sailboat for cruising around Long Island and the Hudson as a weekender mostly for two but sometimes 4 people. I am looking at two boats. The first is a Cal 30 from 1968. It seems good besides the fact that it has the Atomic 4 gas in board and doesn't have a roller furling. The 2nd boat is a Catalina 27 tall rig 1979. The Catalina has a yanmar diesel and a roller furling. Both are tiller steering. Both have holding tanks and new depth and knot meter. How do these boats stack up with eachother? Which one would you go for and why? e
