Two-dimensional gravity-capillary solitary waves propagating at the surface of a fluid of infinite depth are considered. The effects of gravity and of variable surface tension are included in the free-surface boundary condition. The numerical results extend the constant surface tension results of Vanden-Broeck and Dias to situations where the surface tension varies along the free surface.
