After looking it up I'm surprised I've never heard of it actually, and I have a new question: WTH is going on with the time zones in Arizona?!
It's always a bit of a problem to apply a technical definition to a colloquial term like "the sea". I think most people think of "the sea" in the same way that I see dictionaries define it: the *salt water* body that covers most of the earth. And to be "on the sea" means to have a presence on the shoreline of that body, not on an enclosed half-freshwater estuary that would gradually grade into the Deschutes river if not for a dam. Is Antioch, California "on the sea" because saltwater reaches that far up Suisun Bay and the Delta? Almost everyone would describe San Francisco as "on the sea"; almost no one would describe Mountain View as "on the sea", let alone (say) Antioch.
If you clarify where *you* draw the line for purposes of the question, it might be clearer.
