Don't know about the Pearson 303 but I prefer a tiller up to around 35'. Helps feel the boat better in my mind and past that the only option is a wheel. I would suggest trying a wheel and tiller if you are looking for something under 35' and determine what feels good for you.

Now I`m aimin' for heaven
But probably wind up down in hell
Where upon this alter I will hang my guilt ridden head
But it`s time I`ll take before I begin
Three sheets to the wind, Three sheets to the wind
