Motor boat wakes is a pressing problem in Venice’s canals. It poses a safety threat to smaller boats which risk being capsized, and erodes the canal walls. The goal of this project was to address inefficiencies in the Venetian boat transportation system in order to reduce wake production. Modifications to the public, taxi, and cargo boat systems were suggested and broken-down into a five-year plan which would result in a wake reduction of approximately 70%.
