Equations describing nonstationary flow of ideal fluid with a free surface are considered.
They are investigated in conformal variables. For such equations, the correct solvability
is proved in a scale of spaces of analytic functions. Constructive methods of estimating
the lifetime of solutions for such equations are developed and justified. An example of
numerical calculation by these methods is given.
