I completely redid this quiz. As several people pointed out, the Wikipedia source is extremely poor. I spent a couple hours computing the coastlines myself, and got results which make a lot more sense. You can read more here. As far as I know, my list is the only accurate source for state coastlines that exists on the internet.

In the last version, before the correction mentioned above, I think I remember Oregon was there but not Washington, which did seem strange to me.

I would have thought Hawaii would have been in there.

Hawaii is pretty small, but according to QM's data it's #11.

Love the quiz. What about Michigan? More than 3,000 miles of coastline.
