This paper is concerned with steady-state subcritical gravity–capillary waves that are produced by potential flow past a wave-making body. Such flows are characterised by two non-dimensional parameters: the Froude number, $F$, and the inverse Bond number, $T$. When the size of the wave-making body is formally small, there are two qualitatively different flow regimes and thus a single bifurcation curve in the $(F,T)$ plane. If, however, the size of the obstruction is of order one, then, in the…
