What did American pilots who flew both the Lancaster and B17 prefer?

The RAF flew B-17F’s in anti-submarine patrols.

“Nineteen B-17Fs were transferred to Britain and assigned the Royal Air Force serial numbers FA695 to FA713, and used from July 1942 to December 1944. The B-17F was called the “Fortress II” in Royal Air Force service. 42-5234, Royal Air Force serial number FA707, was assigned to Royal Air Force 206 and 220 squadrons, flying long range antisubmarine and patrol missions out of Britain.
