I think I see Chai Tea, I was looking at the map on this link and it appears to show them both with a coastline.

So where they "end" they must be bordering Mexico then??

I once lost 50 bucks to my son. I was sure that Oklahoma and Colorado were not adjacent! Sad

It's interesting that nobody considers the great lake states in this question you can sail from them to Canada so how are they landlocked?

If they (the states) do not abut an ocean or a body of water (other than a river or canal or creek)directly connected to an ocean(such as is the case with Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama along the Gulf of Mexico which adjourns to the Atlantic Ocean) they are considered to be landlocked. The thinking which you are using would allow states such as Arkansas and Missouri among others to also lose landlocked status since they need only The Mississippi River to reach the Gulf of Mexico. If a state connects to a major body of water (Atlantic or Pacific Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico) only via a river it is considered landlocked. Being able to sail from Canada to the United States does not negate the landlocked status.

The idea which you have set forth would say that Tennessee and Arkansas are not landlocked since a person can sail from one to the other.
