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.

Close encounters of the large vessel kind

We are now safely awaiting the opening of the Ben Sawyer Bridge in the ICW just north of Charleston.

The harbor channel was very busy this morning.  We were passed by two outbound container ships and one inbound container ship over took us just as we entered the jetties.

 We did mange to hit 7 knots surfing its bow wave as the vessel passed within a few hundred meters of our position.
