Myers Adds Connect-A-Port XL5 to Connect-A-Dock Line

SOUTH BEND, IN — Elkhart Plastics LLC, a Myers Industries, Inc. company (NYSE: MYE), expands its floating dock product line with the new Connect-A-Port XL5 Personal Watercraft port.

Connect-A-Dock PWC new model


The Connect-A-Port XL5 is a 5-foot wide Personal Watercraft (PWC) floating dock that allows PWC users to easily roll off to launch and drive on to park. The new dock offers a universal hull designed with adjustable rollers that can be moved to better match the size and style of the user’s PWC. Additionally, the new design allows two jet ski docks to fit inside the conventional 10′ wide boat slip, a solution for rental locations where space is limited.

The XL5 is available in five colors and can be attached to floating and stationary docks. PWC Docking adds a safe harbor for one, two, or three-place personal watercrafts.

The new XL5 joins Elkhart ‘Plastics’ Connect-A-Dock product line, which includes a Connect-A-Port XL6 model. The Company also offers two series of rotomolded docks and the YAKport Kayak Launch under the Connect-A-Dock brand.

“Elkhart Plastics is happy to serve customers’ docking needs with the new PWC XL5 model. After the XL6 launch in early 2021, this was a clear next step to continue product line expansion based on customer requests”, says Jack Welter, Business Vice President, Rotational Molding Platform at Myers Industries, Inc.
