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.

Juggling Projects and Watching the Weather

The stable weather of the last week has eroded over the past 48 hours.  While we have only had one thunderstorm roll through the outlook has slowed our progress on repainting the deck.  

Anne cleaning tools after adding fairing filler to the cabin top.
 We did complete adding fairing filler to areas on the cabin trunk this afternoon.  Weather permitting tomorrow we will unleash the sanders.  We hope to have the area ready for primer by Monday.

The gallows cross piece now 3 coats of epoxy & 6 coats of Bristol Finish applied.
I continue to build up the finish on the boom gallows cross piece and other bits of bright work.  I'm going for 3 coats of epoxy and 8 coats of bristol finish on the cross piece.  At my current pace it should be ready to re-install on Sunday.  

Six coats of finish and a shiny hinge doth a rejuvenated  table make.
I also completed refinishing our table and installed a new hinge.  

Progress, Progress, Progress...
