small pocket cruiser with shallow draft and low freeboard

i just bought a small house on a navigable canal. the waters are very shallow (2') and there is a bridge with only a 7' clearance between me and open waters.

I would like to get a small (15-20') pocket cruiser that i can motor under the bridge and then easily raise the mast. Is this even a possibility?

my sailing experience is pretty much limited to catamarans and windsurfers so I appreciate any help i can get.

Thanks in advance,
fred
