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.

Hurricane Earl preparations

We continue to hope that Earl will track further east.  The image above is the forecast track as of Wednesday morning.  We are preparing to move C’est la Vie out of the Beaufort and head inland to a secure anchorage in the South River.  I placed a red thumbtack on the map below to highlight our planned anchorage.
This seems like the best area for us to hide from Earl’s passing.  Unfortunately the Verizon coverage map is less than favorable for staying in touch with everyone.  Hopefully we will have cell phone connection, but coverage in the area is spotty.
Our plan is to set our anchors in the South River by this afternoon and begin to prep the boat by removing sails, canvas, etc.  The storm is expected to pass during Thursday night.  If all goes well then we will be back in Beaufort/Taylor’s Creek by Friday afternoon.
