Eustatia Sound to Oil nut Bay doable for 6 ft draft?

I'm chartering a boat in 4 weeks in the BVI. I've chartered there many times but always followed the standard charter route. This time I'm looking for some out of the way areas that are doable but still prudent for a skipper. Has anyone done this? and what other great non traditional anchorages should I look at?

Re: Eustatia Sound to Oil nut Bay doable for 6 ft draft?

I'd start by checking for out of bounds areas as designated by your charter company. I've been sailing and living in the area for 7 years and never had a desire to take either of my boats into Eustatia. If you have 4 weeks and chartered the BVI many times, why not leave? Have you been around St John? Have you been to the SVI? St Croix? St Martin?
