I think the picture is self explanatory. The ports are all built by the sea, although the ships do not arrive there. A expedition could never be started since the start of the game.

My suggestion would be to define a maximum distance between the port and the shipyard. So that an AI have to build a shipyard in the immediate vicinity of the port.

A workaround for this bug is to set size of shipyard to port. I used it in my fork. So the AI could only build a yard at the coast of a sea.

I would suggest to change the size of a shipyard to "port". So AI can only build shipyards on sea and not on lakes or rivers.

Or second suggestion: We define a size "yard", which can placed on maps like "port".
("port" as a size modification of "big" and "yard" as a size modification of "medium")

Or third suggestion: We add AI hints, so the AI should only be build shipyards next to a port.
(Like the code for ware supporters. A port supports building of ships and a shipyard needs a supporter.)
