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.

Paint, primer, and progress

Progress, progress and the project lists continues to shrink. 
Anne has repainted the floor and engine room wall in the quarter berth (a.k.a. the guest suite).

And I continue to prime the gallows bases...

above is pictured coat #3 of primer. I also continue to fair out the generator box with filler to provide a smooth finish and neat corners.


We are awaiting Greg from Paradise Welding to make the trip down to Everglades City for the installation of the stainless steel posts for the boom gallows.  Tentatively he is scheduled to work on site either later today, Wednesday, or Friday.  Our plan is to ferry C'est la Vie over to our mainland neighbor's dock for the installation.  We will keep you all updated.
