Do not try to simulate the exact geometry instead first start your study with a simplified geomtry and look if you get the results which are acceptable within the limits of assumptions. Boundary conditions again depends on the exact problem being modeled. -H

Also you will have to have two inlets, one for air and the other for water. And similarly for the outlet. Define 'Velocity Inlet' BC at all these boundaries. Use 'Symmetry' BC along the plane of symmetry of the boat. Keep the rest of the boundaries i.e. top, side and bottom of the domain as 'Wall'. Keeping all these in mind, you will have to develop a 3d model and then mesh it. For meshing unstructured grid (tetrahedral) would be fine. Regards, Manoj
