Default 3D Simulation of a free surface with surface piercing element

I'm trying to simulate a 3D domain containing a free surface with a surface piercing aerofoil but I'm encountering a few problems. Would anyone have any idea of where I could find the detailled step by step process?
I'm really working a lot on it, but can't seem to find solutions to the problems I got.

First of, I can't seem to be able to fill up the domains with water or air before the simulation starts. Using VOF method, I'm trying to use the multiphase setting 0 for the air input and output, and 1 for the water domain and output.

Also, I'm trying to study the surface deformation. What is the setup to be used in CFD post?

I attached the basic setup.

Try using patch to fill the volume with water as the initial condition. this has been done in the tank flush tutorial of Ansys which you can easily find on the internet.
