Sunsail/Moorings will have a grocery on property by this Fall that will make provisioning easier meanwhile, there are two Grand Marche stores on the Dutch side that have everything you could wish for to supply your boat including booze at duty-free prices. If your boat is in the Lagoon, they wil deliver your purchases to the dock. Friends of mine own the Dinghy Dock Bar - they have great mussels on Thursday in season. You are right about the North side of St Martin (French) and the smaller islands. Anguilla can be a pain as they require you to limit your anchoring to certain areas and obtaining permits ahead of time. The exit from & entrance into Oyster Pond can be challenging during an easterly blow but the water in the channel is about 30 feet deep until you enter the pond. Grand Case is another "don't miss" Grat food is available in everything from the LoLos ( beach front grills) to fancy eats at expensive restrauants. There is good snorkeling on the east side of the entrance to the bay.
