Just off of the top of my head, and completely untried:

Use a heightfield. Difference either a box the size of your heigtfield, or
separate heightfield representing only the y-extruded xz profile of your wake
heightfield, and then drop your wake heightfield into the hole. This would only
define the general shape of the wake. You might then find Chris Colefax's
spray.inc useful for the burst of spray either side of the wake.

Hope that helps with a place to start.
