Corinth canal[edit]

Shouldn't the Corinth Canal be included here? --rossb (talk) 19:28, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Clarification needed since 2009[edit]

The following has needed clarification since 2009:

For a canal to qualify as a ship canal, it must have a minimum depth of at least 5 metres (16.4 feet)

with a reason:

that critical removes half the following canals

There has been no clarification, and no source has been provided for that definition of a ship canal. Surely the only definition needed for a ship canal is that it is/was designed to accommodate ships that navigate/navigated adjoining oceans, seas or lakes; as opposed to being for vessels specifically designed for river/canal navigation. As nobody has seen fit to clarify in over 3 years, no point in seeking more clarification/sourcing; being brave and changing the definition. -- Starbois (talk) 12:33, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
