I love the storm and do believe that it is more versatile than the paddlecat. If overnights are in the plan then that would be the way to go.
I had a few things in mind when I bought the paddlecat. First I wanted something to get some of the kids off my boat, it needed to be small light and stable. Also wanted the ability to row when I get a chance for after work runs... Our paddle cat functions mostly like an IK for us only more stable and fun. I have quite a few days on IK's and didn't really want to buy one. I like sitting up and across from someone. It is easily 2x more stable than an IK.
If you want something way more fun stable and versatile than a tandem IK then the paddle cat is it. If you want a small raft to do traditional raft duties just smaller then go with a Storm. IMHO
