Let's see, I have owned a Catalina 250, 320, 380, now a 400. Hmm, let me think a moment about how I would direct you...
Ahh, well, I made my decision: Catalina!!
In all honesty, it is a sold boat. You are not going to win any races with either one of them unless you have one serious handicap (or just cheat and use your engine when no one is looking like I do). IP is a great boat. I have heard people knock them and for the life of me I do not understand why. I am sure Jeff will chime in with a lot more detail than I can (and would probably point you to the IP) but either boat is a good boat. They both have great owners groups, but I will say this: Think of the pride and friends you will have when you say:
"Hey, I got the same make ole' Cruising Dad has!!" Well, on second thought, if friendships mean anything to you, maybe you ought to consider the IP instead.
