Looking for opinions on 14'-16' catboats

Hi, I presently have a BB Swan, (12') but I'm thinking about going bigger.   I want a folding mast, (although kevlar would probably work as well), as I will be trailering it. 

Present candidates are the Menger 15, the Minuteman 15, and maybe the Arey's pond 14'.   Also the Handy Cat looks nice, but I'd probably have to make a mast tabernacle.   I'm leaning towards the Menger or the Minuteman.   The Menger seems to be much better looking.   Weight and sail area are similar.   I guess I'm wondering if anyone can compare the sailing qualities.

I'm surprised a Marshall Sandpiper (15.6 ft.) with a hinged mast isn't on your list.

I do like the Sandpipers. But just a littele bit deep, a little bit heavy, and a touch more expensive.
