Build A Canal

Need to send a sea unit across the world? Finding yourself going around gigantic paninsulas and taking more time than you would like? Her is a way to shorten the time to get from point A to point B. If there is ONE square that is separating TWO bodies of water, than build a base on that square and sea unis can pass through that base to the other side.
