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.

Other project that has taken much more time than expected...

Here is an image of my progress on C'est la Vie's companionway steps
 Like so many boat projects this one has taken much longer than expected.  Most of the time has gone to multiple coats of Bristol Finish in search of perfection. I did add non skid to the treads. The only remaining part of this project is to install the new mounting hardware used to attach the steps to the interior of the boat.

  1. The new companion way steps look great. The addition of the non-skip is better than the tape non-skid. Can't wait to see them installed.

    How many coats of bristol finish did you end doing?
