Most people tend to favor the boat they have/know - duh... People want to validate their choice and in most cases don't have experience with other boats so the answers these questions typically generate are usually loaded with all kinds of bias.
For all practical purposes, these boats are interchangeable. The only reason(s) for selecting one over the other are personal perception, the proof of which lies (I infer) in why you choose to limit your search to only B's and C's. There are a myriad of other mfgs making equivalent boats for similar money that are equally well built and outfitted.

About the best advice anyone can give you is ask your family, without imposing any biases or perceptions you have, which they prefer - if they aren't happy, you won't be...
