corsair 24 vs newick outrigger 26

I'm seriously shopping for a fast trimaran for retirement daysailing and some singlehanded cruising on lake michigan. I've been leaning towards the corsair f25 mark one as I like the centerboard option and the sliding hatch. I also found a newick somersault/outrigger 26.

I'm not new to sailing but am new to multihulls. Can anyone give me some input on plusses/minuses of the corsair vs the newick. I don't anticipate trailering either boat much. (Just to/from the launch at the beginning/end of the season so don't see the longer setup for the newick as a problem especially if I could expect better performance out of the newick.

My questions:
Would either boat be significantly faster than the other?

Is one significantly more seaworthy?

On the newick tri It appears the lashings for the tramps is the sole way of securing the amas. Should I see this as a problem?

Are there any factors unseen by me that might make one or the other as a better option?

Thanks for your help.
