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.

Better weather allows progress both inside and out

Clear skies have finally returned to the area.  Anne and I were finally able to build the deck mast step up to 25 layers.  Once the epoxy cured, I ground out the high spots and discovered that we will need to add more mat to ensure the mast is not reduced in height when we complete this conversion.
We cut 5 more layers of mat and plan to add those to the step over the weekend.

Meanwhile below decks a bit of sanding plus a few coats paint and  the holes filled in the port, forward bulkhead are now gone...
Once the paint dried we drilled the new, lower hole to allow a 1 1/2" diameter line to pass between the holding tank and the pumpout fittings.
