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.

Head refinishing project completed!

Since the port side chain plate brackets are behind much of the head plumbing, we stalled the head project to await the complete installation of the chain plates.  After using a water hose to test the deck seal of the chain plates - no leaks -, I installed the head pump and made up the hose connections above the new counter top,

Our pump for the lavac head is located in the cabinet above the counter.  On C'est la Vie the pump is plumbed so that it can be used to flush the toilet or pump out the holding tank when offshore.

Here is a look at the completed head...

Here is a link to a photo album documenting the process of refinishing the head and replacing the plumbing - Refinish Head - Summer 2011 

We do plan to order a new toilet seat seat/lid when we get back to Florida this winter.
