swak4Foam (groovyBC) setting different directions for waves and velocity profile

I have a question about groovyBC.
With groovyBC, is it possible to define the wave direction and the current direction different than each other?
I am trying to model a boat traveling through waves (wave speed) with constant speed (boat speed). I want to see the performance of the boat with waves coming from different directions in different cases, so I need to define the direction of the waves and the current directions different than each other.
I mean lets say is it possible to define uniform velocity distribution from bottom to sea-level in x-direction and at the same time is it possible to generate my waves traveling in y-direction?
If this setup is possible, does anybody know a tutorial/example that I can go through?
Thank you very much for your help in advance,

I'm not an expert, but have a look at the ShipHydrodynamics-sessions at http://www.openfoamworkshop2013.org/...p?Main=2&sub=1 to get an idea what is being done
