Default I have been running a surface

I have been running a surface piercing foil in rasInterFoam. The free surface forms correctly early in the simulation, but over time it looks like there is a reflection off the outlet patch that does not seem correct.

A tar'd copy of the case files is here foilFn19Case.tar.gz and some images showing the wave height contours plotted on the gamma = 0.5 iso-surface at time equal 0.4 where the free surface is forming nicely 0.40.png.gz and later at 7.25 sec 7.25.png.gz .

If someone could review the images and case files and point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

I can email a small movie that is to big to post here if it would help.
