Paul Pennington, right, and Jimmy David, construction employees for the subcontractor and tilt-wall erection company Sunshine Specialties Inc. in Orlando, work to raise one of the 135 concrete panels for the boathouse being constructed at the Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club in Naples on Monday. The concrete walls will be temporarily held together by steel beams, which will be removed after the walls are welded together and supported by the use of steel and a roof. The boathouse will be able to house more than 300 boats up to 50 feet in length. The concrete walls are able to withstand 150-mph winds and the largest concrete panels are 46 feet tall and 39 feet wide. The boathouse is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2008.
