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.

Rain, rain, rain

Heavy, daily rains have retarded progress on repairs.  For the last 6 days we have waited to add to the 18 layers of mat in place on the base for the new on deck mast step.
We estimate the base will require 25 layers of mat to bring the layup level with the existing lip.  Once the two are level we will then fair out the new base.  The new compression post will drop down through the hole and rest on the original mast step.  A half inch stainless steel plate caps the new compression post.  This plate will rest flush on the base seen above.  If all this is confusing, then stay tuned.  With the forecast improving we should begin to pick up some speed on this project.

Down below I am beginning to re-install the plumbing and electrical ripped out of the vee berth and head to facilitate painting the lockers.  Today I completed rewiring the AC outlets and lights in both the head and the vee berth.
Tomorrow I hope to make progress on the plumbing.
