I would rather go the other way.  We should manage the boat building on 
the centralized level.  This will allow k_s_w not care about actually 
finding a boat, if it really wants a boat, one would be found/built for 
it.  It would take take some time to make this system robust, but it is 
the way forward I feel.

Among other reasons for it, aiferry_find_boat is a PF-based function and 
should not be called too often.

For "centralized boat building" patch see ticket 8992 (I will send in the 
latest patch in a minute).  Please help me in bringing this patch up 
to standards, testing it and using the latests technology (ocean numbers 
+ Per's ocean connectivity patch).

Best wishes,
