With summer just around the corner and good times on the water looming, Elkhart Plastics has announced the expansion of its floating dock product line with the new Connect-A-Port XL6. A Myers Industries Inc. company, Elkhart designed the personal watercraft (PWC) floating dock to allow users to easily roll off to launch and drive on to park.

The Connect-A-Port XL6 is six feet wide and 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 has more walking surface around the edges, making it easier for riders to get on and off their PWC safely. The XL6 is available in five colors and can be attached to floating and stationary docks.

The rotationally-molded XL6 joins Elkhart Plastics’ Connect-A-Dock line as the second Connect-A-Port PWC floating dock model. The company also offers two series of rotomolded docks and the YAKport kayak launch under the Connect-A-Dock brand.

“As we see the outdoor recreation industry continue to grow, we’re excited to bring a new docking option to our customers,” said Jack Welter, President of Elkhart Plastics. “The XL6 is an update from the former 2XL model with enhancements that make docking a better experience for the end users.”

In addition to Connect-A-Dock, Elkhart Plastics manufactures the TUFF series intermediate bulk containers and Kong coolers.

Connect-A-Port XL6 and other Connect-A-Dock products are available from dealers across the United States and international distributors globally. Elkhart Plastics creates rotationally molded plastic products in a variety of shapes, lengths, and thicknesses out of its six facilities. The company provides custom designs for clients in a range of industries, including recreational vehicles, marine, agriculture, commercial construction equipment, and material handling.
