St. Maarten Salt Pond

What is the depth in salt pond in St. Maarten? Would a boat with 7 feet of draft have any issues mooring there?

Re: St. Maarten salt pond

It's deep in areas by the Dutch Bridge as the largest sail and mega cruisers go in routinely. In other areas, your dingy stands a chance of hitting bottom. 7' will go through most of the lagoon. It's marked pretty well.
