Those repeaters were probably VHF with dipole antennas.
It is about 125 miles to Seattle and I can get their repeaters with a HT.
Not really a fair comparison me thinks.
It's only about a mile direct to salt water. Just a long wire would do it.

Motorola installed repeaters in Maine atop mountains which were solid granite.  They made it work somehow. 

Maybe just a bucket of salt water with a ground wire ???
