If you are going to delete many miles of coastline data, are you then going to take the responsibility for re-entering this data afterwards, to at least the same level of accuracy as the current data? It seems to me that it would be better to tell your editor program not to display the coastline during your editing session. After all, there are likely to be some people who want to render the coastline, and they won't be able to do so if you have deleted the data.

I'm currently working on importing CanVec data around Lake Superior...
the coast line was really getting in the way, so I'm deleting it. I'm
actually joining them to the CanVec water corners... but it's probably
creating a coastal hole, not really sure if the join is actually working.
My plan is to finish loading all the coastal areas with the canvec
data. Then joining the big body of water with a single relation, on the
Canadian side. That will become the new coastal waters object, when
finished. On the USA side I'll just join the existing coastal waters
object across the USA/Canada boarder.
I should have the entire lake finished by the end of the week... I
hope. I just wanted to post this in case it sent up red flags somewhere.
