Catalina 22 v Aquarius 21?

Just looking for some advice...

Looking at buying a first boat. Sailed a Slipper 17 years ago with my dad, so that gives you my frame of reference here. Considering either a Catalina 22 (not sure on the year/model- just heard about it by word of mouth) or an Aquarius 21. Both are in relatively good condition, approx. same asking (cat $2000 Aq $2500) have two outboards included (cat 10/7.5 mercs - the aq 6/4.5 Evinrudes) Think the cat has an xtra sail or two. Looking to try a few local CT/MA lakes and hitting LI sound/Block Island/MV for weekends and maybe a weeklong trip this summer.... Both have trailers. The Aq was in the water last year, the Cat 2 years ago... Any insight/advice would be helpful. One last bit, I have a four year old boy/daredevil, if that make a difference. Thanks in advance for any advice/experience,

Ke
