Racer Cruiser

I am beginning to search for a new boat. I really love the J105 but it is way too much money for this stage in life. My wife will not go for something like a Melges24 as she still likes to overnight on the boat and will not step foot on one if I got it. So I am looking for something in the 25 to 30 foot range that can be a good beercan racer but also a decent weekender. We sail in the great lakes area. Some boats I have been looking at so far in the adds are:

J24
S2 7.9
J80S2 9.1
S2 9.2
C&C 29
Cal 9.2
J30
Hunter 31

I''d rather have a boat with tiller steering as opposed to wheel and cockpit mounted traveller but we haven''t really ruled out more of a cruiser either.

Anyone have any other suggestions to look at? Any bad experiences with any of these?
Thanks.
