I don't have depths for the pond north of the Seaport handy nor a chart to show distances from the Mason's Island anchorage to the village (charts are on the boat). We draw 5.5. We're comfortable covering two miles in the dinghy if its reasonably flat water, less in a lot of chop... wait a minute, found an online viewer for the NOAA charts:

Looks like the bridge connecting Mason's Island with the mainland has 3 feet of vertical clearance. That's rather tight. Also looks like there is 9 feet of depth north of the Seaport. As I said, we've been there before and I do seem to recall noticing boats at anchor but it's been a few years.
