We present some new results on the stability of nonlinear waves in deep water. Two cases are investigated in detail. First the effect of vorticity is analysed, using  asymptotic and numerical methods based on conformal mappings to study the stability of the travelling waves. Then  the stability of nonlinear hydroelastic waves to superharmonic and subharmonic perturbations is considered.
