Complete Data Retrieval, Water Data

Using the 'icao' and 'layer' parameters together will retrieve weather data that is '~' segment delimited and '*' element delimited.

'layer=water' will retrieve the current weather data as it relates to locations on or very near water. Information on how to find the ICAO code can be found here.
