Yamsailor - I don't have my charts in front of me to check depth, but we stayed at the Delaware City Marina about 3 years back on our 40' boat with a 6' draft. I'm pretty sure we wouldn't have gone in there if the charts had shown the water to be that thin, and we didn't have any issues. The entrance is a bit tricky, but we followed the markers in (and our radar out - almost a Maine fog when we left) and didn't see really thin water.
