Keep in mind your depth sensor is near the keel in the engine bay, meaning 2ft (prop diameter) is where it starts to get critical if you have sand/mud as we do, if you got rocks where a slightest touch means damage it's a different story.

Keep in mind that people and ballast will cause you to ride deeper. When you hit the throttle to take off the stern will also sink in a bit. The draft is not same as the actual safe running depth that will vary by the above factors. Also, if you're pushing the limits of this, clean your strainer out more regularly to prevent starving the engine of cooling water.
