"border of the western ocean"? West-coast?

I don't think he translated that. This phrase comes from a comment by 
KCD executive producer Keith Halper about the "Warriors Anthem":

"The literal translation is always skewed a bit, so if you send him 
[Okrand] 'Row, row, row your boat,' you'll get back 'Propel, propel, 
propel your craft.' "
