If you owned land by the shore, how far into the water did your property go? How far into the ocean did your rights as owner extend?

According to Elias Sablan of Saipan, there was an "unwritten law" among Chamorros that your property rights went as far as the water line in between high and low tides.

I wonder if this was the case in the rest of the Marianas?
