Given that neither Doug or C172guy have posted in over three years... it's unlikely you'll get a response.

Either boat would work for sailing the ICW and bays, but the Catalina 30 is going to be a much better boat for liveaboard purposes, as it will be far larger in terms of space.

Either boat could easily cross the Gulf Stream, given the right weather window, but the CD30 is probably a more seaworthy design.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
