Maybe you could track not just the number of available boats but also the
relative demand and the number of potential boat-building cities compared
to the number of inland cities and have coastal cities always keep on the
back burner the idea that maybe they should consider building a boat for 
the benefit of the inland cities.

Like maybe if an inland city wants to build a boat but cannot because it 
is inland, it could add itself to a lobby list saying hey here is one more 
inland city that wishes it could build a boat.

Maybe you might need to balance with with also a list saying hey here is 
one more coastal city that whishes it could build a defnder or attacker 
but instead is busy building a boat. So a tradeoff could happen, inland 
cities that want boats could instead send units to coastal cities that 
would prefer other units...
