C'est la Vie is a 1966 Charlie Morgan 34.

Her home port is Everglades City, FL. Our typical cruising area is Southwest Florida, the Florida Keys, the Southeastern Atlantic Seaboard, and the Bahamas. We are C'est la Vie's third owners and purchased her in 2005. We continue to maintain and update this classic vessel.

a leap forward

Yesterday, May 7th, we moved the boat over to a friend's dock on the mainland and Greg from Paradise welding traveled down to Everglades City to install the metal post and braces for C'est la Vie's new gallows.

Greg is pictured in the image above welding on the extensions to our existing stern railings.  These extensions provide more security in the cockpit and bracing for the gallows.

Once the welds were completed then the polishing began.

We still have numerous facets of this projects to complete - polish the welds, finish the cross brace, install backing plates, bed the thru deck bolts, but it does feel like we made a leap forward yesterday.
