Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi there,

while rendering a map, I regognized the 'coastline_good' shape is incomplete. In some tiles it's not showing up (e.g. Cornwall, England or Sardinia, Italy). Is there a possibility to fix that or can I find a complete shape somewhere?

Thanks for help

OpenStreetMap itself does not publish a shape file named "coastline good". You might be referring something made available by MapBox, in which case the proper place to discuss that would be their support forums.

Jochen Topf publishes a series of coastline shape files on his http://openstreetmapdata.com/ site and he claims that these are correct (or at least, as correct as possible with OSM data).
