10' would be the absolute minimum. A lot of boats in the 22'-24' range are going to be very close to that on the trailer. Doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room.
Seems like the obvious answer, but I would go as wide as possible....

Believe me when I say that owning your own business is not the utopia some make it out to be. Especially if it is labor intensive.
A large portion of the general workforce sucks and decent, dependable employees are few and far between.
