But as the same time 2.4Ghz is the frequency that excite water, and if the
link is over the water then signal will get weaker. 

My client is AP that is mounted on the boat.

If you are thinking of going to your clients in one hop, then I bet
2.4Ghz would give you better range. 5.8Ghz has a transmit power
limitation. I was suggesting 5.8Ghz for just the first point-to-point in
a two step system.
