Well, the thing is that the ocean is a shader and there's no particles emitted. I guess i'll have to use a fluid shape which emitts particles and maybe make it displace as the ocean does ?

Do u thing i'm true ?

I saw a similar discussion on the A|W Maya discussion boards and here is a quote:

Re: motor boat trail !? (msg # 1.)


I would try using "Wake" Dynamics. After making a Particle Grid, Goto: Fields>Create Air>[Option Box], Wake.
You will need to configure you Dynamic Relationship, but this should get you on the right trail.

Re: motor boat trail !? (msg # 2.)



Another approach is to make the water (Plane) a Softbody, and add Springs. Then Connect the boat (Passive rigidBody) as a collision object and animate it through the water.
Combine various Effects (Power permitting) Note: I'm using Maya Complete 2.5. no fluid effects
