This paper describes the development of an empirical tool that can rapidly and accurately predict the characteristics of the wave wake generated by vessels that typically operate within sheltered waterways, including small commercial craft and recreational vessels. A wave wake regulatory criterion is also proposed and incorporated within the prediction tool.
