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.

But it`s time I`ll take before I begin
