Build a Ship Canal Between Douglas & Peel

Seems as we don't seem to have a limit on potential spending, the Government should look at building a ship canal between Douglas and Peel to allow shipping from England and Ireland to avoid the costly detour around the south and north of the Island. 

The canal should be built to the largest class of ships currently being built. 

Why the contribution is important

It will allow the Government to collect tolls as ships pass through the canal. 

It will solve the silting problem at Peel Marina 

It will solve the problem of building a cruise ship berth in Douglas 

It will attract 11 million cruise visitors each year - each will spend £100k in the local economy,
