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.

Crossing Lake Okeechobee

We exited the rim canal at Clewiston and entered the long, exposed, and narrow channel leading out actross a shallow area known as rocky reef.  Due to Spartan rain fall this winter the lake is at a record low level for this time of year.  On average we were.o serving depths 1 to 2 feet less the charted values.  The minimum depth we observed in the channel was 5 feet.  Once again we are please to draw less than 4 feet.

Once clear of rocky reef we set a waypoint for Port Mayaca and let Otto take the helm.  Unfortunately 12 knots of wind directly on our bow limited our options to mooring.
