Yes...both boats can take you anywhere. I too would give an edge in seaworthiness to the CT41 in good condition. Unfortunately...most CT41's you find will have significant problems with hull, deck, or tanks and you are much more likely to find a lovingly cared for 424. Some people don't like the layout of the 424 as it is a bit different. Note also that the boat is also available in a 422 center covckpit version. These tend to be rare and sell quickly. If you can find a CT41 that someone else has already done all the work on, they are excellent cruising boats.
