Default Ocean Shader Conversion?

Hi,

I have been working in Maya Unlimited now for some years, but I have been recently switched over to maya Complete. The only problem I have with this is the ocean shader, which I use regularly isn't available.

Does anyone know a way of imprting this in, or using a plugin for it? Any help would be appreciated.

PS, Im using 2008

The only thing that I could think of is adding an expression to one ofthe built in materials, say the crater one to get a black and white random movement and then wither use this as a bump or a displacement.
