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 in the water!

The last few days are a blur.  Most of the time and effort has gone into finishing up the rigging and trouble shooting various issues that have arisen from our summer projects (i.e. a tang on the backstay rubbing on the aft halyard sheaves, a kink in the new hose connecting the galley sink to the fresh water tank, etc.)

We finally launched on All Hallow's Eve...

Today we wrapped up our troubleshooting - I hope.  We also, rigged the mainsail and the Dutchman furler.

My father, Bud, who will be crewing for the return trip to Florida, arrived today.  We hope to complete provisioning and some last minute projects tomorrow morning and shove off by mid-afternoon.

With any luck our blog will now transition from documenting projects to a travel log.  Stay tuned!
