Not necessarily. With shallow and deep ocean, triremes are allowed to
travel anywhere there is shallow ocean. Once this is implemented,
depending on the settings (how much shallow versus deep ocean is

In the simplistic system Per is proposing where triremes are confined to
coastline, yes their range is lowered because they cannot cross
