i have a ship that sails on an ocean. Using Dynamic Paint, this ship leaves a trail of paint on the ocean and makes some waves which then dissolves after a few seconds. The ship is set as a brush and the ocean as a canvas. If I run the animation in the viewport, everything works perfectly and the ship draws a track on the ocean when it moves forward. However, when I bake the Dynamic Paint, the paint trail is displayed from the last frame i baked no matter what frame I'm on. But the ship should of course draw this track first. How can I bake it so that the track is drawn correctly with the ship? I would be very happy to receive help!

EDIT: Here is the simplified file:

Here I run it directly over the viewport and stop at frame 20. Everything perfect. enter image description here

Here I bake 90 frames and then go back to frame 20. The white trace from frame 90 is still shown. enter image description here

Name each cache by unique prefix ... without that, baking overwrites previous layer.
