Smile Help! My first boat purchase!

Hello all!
Currently looking at an '84 Newport 28S and an '84 Cal 31 for sailing/ownership experience for 2-3 years before i upgrade to larger. Any recommendations? Liveaboard somewhere on the Hudson with FWC, Shore power hookup. Any recommendations/experiences as to why these would/would not make a good liveaboard in this area during winter here in the NJ/NY area? I appreciate all the feedback i can get before committing to survey either...To give you an idea of the condition from my own inspection: Newport has all the mechanics & features, AC/heat, CNG, super clean, everything works good. The Cal has couple of soft spots on the deck...
Thank you to all your contributions in advance!
