I found that :
applying --generate-sea to one tile works fine for my area, as long as I use
without --ignore-osm-bounds sea & land is reversed.
applying --generate-sea on 4 tiles for my area, with --ignore-osm-bounds, 3
are correct and one is reversed.
without --ignore-osm-bounds, the same 3 are reversed and the forth correct!

Maybe you can play a bit with this in mind.
Build a background map with only the coastline (using a style with only
coastlines), in one tile, with --ignore-osm-bounds on.
Build another map that is transparent and fits over the coastline map for
(I find that --ignore-osm-bounds interferes with routing)

Another question on this issue: all the sea polygons has an outline of a
darker blue than the fill colour.
Can this be changed in any way
maybe by a subsequent run of MkGMap with an appropriate style file?
What would the style file entry look like?
