    Take a look at this Carthaginian Caravel. The jungle is full of oil and seems to be navigable for these clever Phoenicians ;)



    But seriously, how this could happen?

    It can happen if they build a fort there.

    There definitely will be a Fort there, the Oil doesn't belong to any BFC.

    it's possible to have a landlock ship, all you need is have a coastal city, build a fort 1 tile inland, put your ship there and raze the city. Now the ship is trap for eternity! (Unless a hostile land unit moves over it)

    Ships can't move into noncoastal (or non-next-to-a-lake) forts or cities, though... So there's always a water tile to go on.

    If you WB'd culture of a civ taht you didn't have OB with, and razed the city, would the ship go to the fort? I'm not sure if that would work. If the fort was next to a lake, but hte lake had the non-OB'd civ's culture, and all the water around the razed coastal city, the ship might get stuck. Any body want to try?

    As to you jungle Caravel, I'm willing to bet that there's a fort right there.

    In a game this weekend I pointed my damaged warship at the nearest coastal tile to heal and when it stopped I did a double take. That ship looks as if it's ready to to ride the rails. There was a fortress built earlier on a patch of oil.

    Well, seeing as it's a caravel and not an ironclad...
