    I don't think that is true. Clearly an english speaker would know the term but looking though the IMO standard marine communication phrases, "clear water" is not listed. In fact, the major use of "clear" in the SMCPs is as an indication that something should be avoided (e.g. "keep clear of ...") which may have added to the confusion.
    There doesn't seem to be a standard phrase that covers this situation exactly, but"depth of water is sufficient in postition ..." (AI/6.2.1.5.9) is probably the closest.
