Any recommendations for a specific water taxi /driver?

Having not had success in finding a boat to rent with "driver" for the Redentore, and having had sticker shock at some of the set menus at hotels with view, I am considering hiring a water taxi. I am wondering if anyone can recommend a specific person? We used to know (13 years ago) one great "taxista" Paolo Bull, but I have learned he has now retired. Any suggestions for someone you have used, and have been very pleased with, would be appreciated

sorry to be a downer but here you might hit another problem .... The taxis I very much doubt will tie up in the centre with the other boats / They will take you out to say the entrance of the grand canal or go out say 11.30 before the fireworks start to watch the fireworks but not for the party beforehand. The night of the Rendentore obviously the taxis for the fireworks are at a premium rate / try veneziataxis for a quote.
