Hi Franc,

I had a look and Navit doesn't have natural=bay as a supported tag even
though it is a supported tag in OSM. 
It might be worth contacting the developers of Navit and ask them to include
the tag natural=bay from a relation to render as water.

I remember there was a discussion a while ago tagging of bays - which
I didn;t pay much attention too ;-(

They now seem to be in a relation for each Bay, which is nice for
defining the area of the bay. However there are no tags on the ways
themselves and as a result Navit does nto render them as water, which
makes the map on Navit significantly less easy to use.

My thought would be to put the coastline tag back on the ways and keep
the relations - any thoughts or suggestions on how to recover Navit
goodness ?
