> Put a bounding box around the phlippines, a long way out way out so the sea looks good and chop out the bounding box and make a new shape file
Using gdal/ogr: http://www.gdal.org/ogr2ogr.html

ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" -t_srs EPSG:4326 -clipdst [xmin ymin xmax
ymax] output.shp input.shp

> If possible, I would like to have the ocean as polygons and land as polygons in the same shape file, with fields for eacj poly stating ocean or land for each so I can style them separately, so it would mean closing the ocean polygons.
Why do you still need the ocean? Can you just paint in your style as
blue (or whatever ocean color) as a global background settings?  Just
guessing here.
