Going loco? Pearson 30 vs. Capri 30, Olsen 25

If you are, then I can out-crazy you. I recently sold my Mirage 236. It is a racer/weekender, but mostly a racer. Low, cramped cabin, lots of deck and cockpit space, PHRF of about 174, which is good for a boat of its size and class. I sold it to by a true trailerable weekender. I tested about 15 different boats in the class. I should mention the mirage is also not very trailerable because of its 9'' 2" beam.

Everything else I tested sailed so poorly, I bought (can you guess?) another Mirage 236. Same model, same year. I have never sailed either the Capri 30 or the Olsen 25, but both have excellent reviews.
