I doubt if this is thrue. St. Maarten is part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands and the Dutch Visa rules for the Caribbean parts of the Kingdom of The Netherlands apply.

See dutch government link;

Welcome.

It's clear you have thought of this plan for a while and I think coming up with the plan is the hardest part.

Right on. What's changed is that with the internet, you hear about what's happening in places you never would have heard about before. If anything, the Carib, for instance, as well as the USA, is much safer than ever.

Be careful of the french side in the lagoon, it runs shallow over there. I ran aground three times while waiting for the bridge to open. I was in a sailboat that drew 5 feet though
