which boat will fit my needs

very new newbie, less than 4 month, 150 plus hrs , and i can't find the words to say how i enjoy sailing. So now the bug is in me and i looking for a boat that will fit my needed. i'm looking for 22' to 28' something to be towable on a trailer, swing keel because i live near a canal system, and a removeable mast that i could take down myself and put back up, and a engine for the canal system. So with all that in mind, any make or models that would come close? Thank for any ideals you my have

Almost all the 22-25' production boats made fit those criteria. Some are a bit more performance oriented, some are a little better for weekending aboard. Assuming you are buying a used boat...condition of the boat, trailer and motor will be more important than brand.
Suggest you check this site out for some good ideas:

Telstar 28. Towable on a trailer, mast raising system that allows you to raise/lower mast using a single line to the genoa sheet winch.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
