I have a 55hp Yamaha on 16 ft flatbottom. I am worried that if I hit a log or rock that it will tear out my lower unit or worse when I run it in the river. Is it a good idea to disable the trim so the motor will kick up. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm not sure about disabling the trim, but I would recommend running an aluminum prop so that you can tear up props instead of lower units. Next I would say add a hydraulic jack plate so that you can run the motor high when your worried about stumps and rock.
Perfection is a moving target.
