What I have used and would recommend:
At least 4 radials. At least one over the water at high tide. If the one
over the salt water needs to be short of ¼ wave, so be it, if the others are
If you care about the signals in directions not favored directly (within 1
wavelength) of the sea, then lay down more radials in those directions. If
you dont, then just leave it at 4.
I have also used a vertical dipole wth the stake literally in the water (a
Force 12 10 40) with excellent results and no radials at all.
