Without being familiar with the topic at all, and seeing that there don’t seem to be any matching tags yet, maybe something like waterway=dredged_channel ?

The way to handle navigable channels across lagoons/lakes is covered at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:route

(you might have to invent route=boat or route=ship). 


I am aware the route relations for, e.g., ferry boats.

What I want to tag are not routes but the water-equivalent of roads. The ferry-boat route (in the lagoon of Venice) uses the navigation channels ("canali") like a bus line follows roads.

At present (always on the lagoon of Venice) mappers would map each "vaporetto" (water bus) route as a separate way plus the "canali" as separate, more or less parallel, ways.

I would think that the roads plus bus route relations model should be applied also to navigation channels and water-based transport in the, admittedly, very specific context of the Laguna Di Venetian.
