The evolution of a gravity wavetrain in water of finite depth is considered. It is shown that the dynamics can be distinguished as pseudo-infinite depth like and finite-depth like in the weakly nonlinear limit Two specific aspects of the weakly nonlinear dynamics, namely, the linear instability and the long-time evolution of the linearly unstable modulation of a gravity wavetrain are considered.
