Largest handleable snake species

Hi, my name is Jake and I am new to this forum. I'm 23, about 6 foot and 200 lbs. What's the largest snake I would be able to handle on my own roughly? Seems tough to find a "mid sized" giant snake. Would want max size under 12 for sure. I would imagine 8-10 feet would be max I could deal with.
I'd rather have a girthier snake than a longer one.
I have an 8x3x3 enclosure.

Any thoughts / suggestions welcome..

I'd say a full grown boa constrictor is not out of the question.

BCC or BCO are large boas that are still pretty manageable. Olive pythons are great too and one of the smaller giants.

0.1 Albino Bull Snake (She-RA)~ 1.0 Snow Bull Snake (Apollo)~ 1.0 Coastal Carpet Python (Chomper)~ 1.0 JCP (Shredder)~ 1.0 Bredl Python (S'ven)~ 0.1 JJ x JCP (Trinity)~ 0.1 Albino Carpet Python (Akasha)~ 1.0 Olive Python (Nigel)~1.0 Scrub Python (Klauss)~ 1.0 BCI (Monty)~ 0.1 BCO (Xena)
