Draft and Mooring Depth

I have access to a shallow area for mooring a prospective boat. I went out between low & high tide, and measured off my kayak - I have between 36"-42" depending on how far I out want to go. My immediate neighbors are a couple of sailing dinghys in close and a Compac Legacy further out. I'm looking for a shoal draft keel, and wonder if I should eliminate anything with more than a 2-foot draft. Can anyone tell me if is there a rule of thumb for this?
P.s. My mooring is free!
