WAVEEATER IN ACTION - FLOATING BREAKWATER VIDEOS

wave attenuation case study

Shipyard Island Marina - Detroit Harbor, WI.

Date: November 1995
Video taken by: Andy Mineo, Owner

Owner wanted to try out a straight line as a movable barricade across his marina entrance. The specific purpose was to close the entrance when storms arose. Based on observations he was achieving approximately 50% wave attenuation.

Client wanted to test a WaveEater Grid system to see how it would handle wakes generated by wakeboarders and surfers. The size of this wave creates damage to their marina which currently has no attenuation system. The boat was ballasted with three thousand lbs to create a three foot wake, which is what is required for this form of recreation. They ran the boat in several directions towards and along the WaveEater system to see how it would handle a multitude of wakes. Observation was that 75% +/- was being dissipated as it passed through the WaveEater floating attenuator.

Result is that WaveEater is being consider for both marina and shore erosion protection on several lakes in the area.
