DTMB and wigley

I'm a new openFOAM user, I'm trying to computate the free surface ship problem. Until now I'm trying 2 different approach:
1) I try to run the simulation of the wigley in a structured mesh with the OF1.6(case made by Eric Paterson (thanks for the link!!!!)) but after 1 second of physical time the water level go down. (I use the interFoam solver)
2) I try the DTMB case using the snappyHexMesh but only after few iteration the pressure field diverge.
Some one has solved a similar problem? Could gave me the right Boundary condition and the case condition?
Thanks a lot.

I'm a new OF user too and I'm working on a similar project. I suggest you to have a look at this different cases:
where you could find an archive named my6DOFFoam which is an example of floating object.
which contains one sovler called shipFoam, BC's library (waveBC) and tutorials.
I've managed to compile them with more or less difficulty but I think it's a good startpoint.
