Soundtracks to movies about water. Popeye, The Deep, Some symphonies google Triton, Poseidon Adventure, The Avalanches that reminds me of a boat,Jobim maybe. Sure somebody said it but the Beach boys.

The Gordon Lighthouse song you mentioned fits the bill - I also loved the Movietone 1930's Beach House track that Mars Rover posted and Trees Polly On The Shore that Normsk posted.

Here's a couple I thought of:
