You can get hit by the boom on a 30 footer. Duck anyway.

Are you looking for a trailer sailor or other?
There a quite a few listings on craigslist along the east coast of Wisconsin.

Firstly, you can still get hit by a boom on a 25'er, it'll just hurt a lot more than the 18'ers boom.

Chances are you can find something off craigslist, or FB marketplace, or even just by checking the marina bulletin boards or storage yards....just for starters a good place to begin.
