Most of the MacGregor models have retracting centerboards/daggerboards and rudders along with easy to operate winches for mast raising. They can easily be underway in 2' of water. The 7' of clearance is going to be an issue no matter what you get, that is not much room, even for a Macgregor, but it is doable with the mast laying right down on the cabin top. You may even have to duck your head.
