Corvair is on a distinguished road
I have a Siren 17 swing keel 'microcruiser'. It would take very little effort to rig the mast to lower enough to go below your 7' clearance. I step the mast by myself when necessary. You'd just need to install a taller mast base to allow the mast to swivel about a foot above the deck.
