14-150ii or 35-100/2.8 (12-100?) comparison shot

I am struggling to decide what I can do to get better IQ for my sailing shots. I currently use 14-150ii.  I clearly need WR, and would prefer something smaller/lighter than 40-150/2.8 (which in any case would force me to make a lens change for shorter FLs in very bad, wet, conditions )

An obvious option is 12-100 cropped where necessary and I thought I would check the 14-150 against the nearest thing I have to 12-100, which is 35-100/2.8.

So here are two shots for your comments.  One is the full image from the 14-150.  The other is the 35-100 cropped to the same size.  Clearly the edges of the 35-100 crop are better, but the centre?  I am afraid the light was not perfect, and it was a bit hazy

What do you think?

Next test is to compare the two at shorter, equal,  FLs where I think the 35-100 will win more easily.

Thanks for comments
