I'd forgotten about that. I think I came up with a list of board combinations that would work with, but I can't find it at the moment.
Didn't make a list, but I counted up the combinations, based on bd3 + one of 33 other boards, with a total of 46 configurations that "work" with my canal overlay.

After reading this thread and realizing this was a terrain feature that would be nice to have, and having finished most of my ASL tasks, I made a few alternate-hexgrain canal overlays for my DYO extension. I used my embankment railroad overlays for my template, giving me a base canal width which would make it fairly easy to modify the existing EmRR overlays to make them canals. Here are three basic canal overlays: 1) single hex, 2) three hex, and 3) transition from hexgrain to alternate-hexgrain. All have multiple layers so you can chance the orientation (i.e., top or bottom hexgrain and 4 different transition possibilities). These overlays are meant to support VASL DYO scenarios, so probably not useful for designers making scenario packs or other printed material, however, hopefully the thread will motivate others to create such material.

Suggestion: "transparent" versions so that other hex terrain can continue to exist

I would vote for a rural map with a canal.
We only have an urban map with one.
