2018-12 New safety line for 50mm rubber cord

Apart from our 27mm and 35mm rubber cords intended for Waverider mooring, Datawell also provides 50mm rubber cords for the mooring of large navigational buoys or other purposes.

The 50mm cord can be equipped with a safety line; our standard has always been 10mm Dyneema.


Recently, we noticed customer interest for a stronger safety line and applied16mm Dyneema. With several requests in line we have decided to make this customer specific design available for all customers.


Thus we can now offer this 50mm rubber cord with 16mm Dyneema safety line to all those who are interested. Please contact our sales department ( for pricing and availability.



Many Waveriders we supplied have been equipped with a Superstar GPS receiver. Recently it has come to our attention that the Superstar generates a faulty date in the logger files. The problem can be explained by an unexpected “GPS week rollover”. The internal date obtained from the GPS satellite system is incorrect. Typically the date is set to the year 2096. To convert the incorrect data we are currently developing a software tool. The only solution to this problem however is to replace the Superstar GPS receiver. The Superstar position module must be replaced with the µBlox GPS receiver (DWR-MKIII and WR-SG). The µBlox GPS receiver was introduced in the beginning of 2012.
