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.

A bit of progress on the keel and a frenzy of packing

Between packing up Outward Bound gear for summer programs and attempting to figure out what we need to pack for a summer, maybe more, on the the boat; we did mange to complete the installation of the keel on our dinghy project.

We used a combination of thicken epoxy and wood screws to affix the strips of red oak.  A single 3/4" thick strip, intended guard against wear, runs the length of the hull.  From amid ships aft the depth of the keel increases to nearly 4".

We still have some finishing work to do on the keel before panting the hull.
