Mind you, the average oceanic depth is a lot deeper than 10 m. Continental shelves alone are usually hundreds of meters deep, and the abyssal plains are usually many thousands of meters deep. For example: the Barents Sea, one of the shallower large expanses of water on the planet, is only about 100 meters deep, though it may reach 200 near the deeper parts. In contrast, Challenger Deep, off the Marianas Island Arc, is about 11 kilometers deep.

He went out and hanged himself and then there were none."
