that boat should have no problems in 2 feet of water. The boat itself should need about 6 ta 8 inches,. With the motor lowered, you probably need a foot too 14 inches.
How big a deal is a tilt and trim? Well, The tilt is prety much to raise and lower the motor in and out of the water, the Trim is used to allow you to force plane ( bring the nose down ).
People that dont have a tilt & trim device manulaly raise and lower the motor to tilt. and usualy have to move wieght around the boat to make it plane.
