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.

Back to the lockers...

After a couple days of discouraging discoveries, it is refreshing to make progress on one of our less troublesome projects.
I completed prepping the starboard salon lockers (above) and was able to apply a coat of primer on the area (below)
Hopefully tomorrow I can return and apply the top coat.

Thanks to everyone that has replied with suggestions on the mast repairs/replacement.  We are in the process of collecting information on our options...

  • Waiting for Sparcraft-US to return with a quote for a new rig
  •  Using the internet and message boards to seek for an appropriate used mast
Once we have a clear picture of the options for replacing the mast, then we plan to investigate local options for repairing the mast.   Based on input from multiple sources cutting the mast at the damaged area and inserting an interior sleeve is the best option for repair. 

We are still collecting ideas and seeking information on replacement options - SV C'est la Vie

Thanks for your comments and support.
