Are you aware that there is 2 shapefile versions of the osm coastline?
You can get them here:
http://tile.openstreetmap.org/processed_p.tar.bz2 (357 MB) full detail
http://tile.openstreetmap.org/shoreline_300.tar.bz2 (46 MB) reduced
detail for low zoom

The filesizes are not up to date, so be prepared that those files
might be a bit bigger.
