Not to mention that some of the states mentioned have very different coastlines in different parts of the state. Weird poll.Looks to me like someone failed either his Geography or his Civics class, 'cause there's quite a few coastal states missing from that list
If you only count the miles that are not littered with lobster pots then I think you may have to trim that number by about 90%.I MAY be biased but how can you beat Maine's 3400 miles of coastline and 3166 islands?
You forgot the Achilles' heel of the Great Lakes, and it pains me to mention it, but the water here can be extremely hard (icy!) for several months and the sailing season is relatively short compared to some locales.If you only count the miles that are not littered with lobster pots then I think you may have to trim that number by about 90%.
It's amazing that nobody seems to think of the Great Lakes. With 4530 miles of coastline, mostly sparse populations, and dramatically less boat corrosion, it seems a fine place to go sailing.
