    Anyone know where I can find a wave pattern similiar to the one linked without the grid system?

    I will use it to get wave in a 3d rendering of a boat in Rhino.

    You can make your own using some free software available here on boatdesign.net.

    Hovercraft wave patterns and those made by travelling pressure distributions:

    If you just want a rough approximation (but better than the one on the NIST page) use ZGREEN with a Havelock Source at the bow, and a Sink at the stern.

    You could use the Hullspeed demo version and use its slender body method to generate some wave patterns from that. Hullspeed is the resistance prediction module of Maxsurf. Info on Hullspeed is at
    http://www.formsys.com/maxsurf/msproducts/hullspeedYou can download a demo from the same site.
    A sample picture is attached.
