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. Please post any questions or comments about C'est la Vie or our travels via the comment links below.

teamwork to tackle the backing plates

Anne and I worked together to create templates for the boom gallows backing plates and to install a port and starboard headsail sheet blocks.  These aft mounted blocks will replace the snatch blocks we are currently using to redirect the headsail sheets to the cockpit wenches..  This will afford us two snatch blocks for spares or for the hope of someday running twin headsails. 

Anne worked above decks to measure and install the blocks.

While I worked below decks to measure out the backing plates (we are having backing plates made for the blocks and the gallows) and to sand away the area in preparation for installation.
