This Can't Be Right

This is supposed to be an accurate depiction of all the free water on the Earth's surface down to the bottom mud and rock sucked up and placed in a sphere over the center of the United States. The sphere has a 700 Km radius, half the Moon and about the size of Rhea, a moon of Saturn. But, wait, we're the freakin' blue white jewel of the galaxy, the water planet, 70% water (that's just the measure of what's on the surface). I'm having trouble accepting this as I thought the oceans were deep. Guess not. More like a thin schmear.
