first time buyer

I am a first time buyer..(Still resurching) I have sean a ad for a 1980 S2 7.3 with a omc sail drive inboard motor. in the ad the owner states a 2'10" draft. but in all the ads I have looked at the S2 7.3 boats are listed with a 4' draft. So my question is was their two (2) versions of this boat made? I need a boat that can go i very shallow water do to many sand barges here. I also would like to be able to pull up close to the many islands we have here in Florida to anker and go swimming so a shallow draft is important. my second question is the 15 hp OMC sail drive motor. are they easy to take out and replace with a outboard engine. I realize this motor is 27 years old so I do not know if it will give out or what their life expetancy is. Please help is you can answer any of these questions or in you have any input on this boat.
