Abstract

In Hong Kong, private boating facilities cater to the elite and public mooring areas serve age-old boating communities, but few mooring options for residents falling between these two categories exist. Additionally, almost all moorings are full. This project sought to make the vibrant waterways of Hong Kong accessible to a larger percentage of the population by determining the feasibility of public-access boat storage facilities. To do so, we recommended feasible locations, operational strategies, and a boat storage facility model.
