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.

The winds of change are upon us...

Thunder from the spring's first afternoon thunderstorm rolling across Chokoloskee Bay signals a change in the seasons.  The absence of staff here on Sunset Island signals the end of our winter work with the Outward Bound School.
Afternoon thunderstorms rolling across Chokoloskee Bay
Now that Anne and I have the island and some time to ourselves we plan to dive headlong into awaiting boat projects.  

Items on the list include...

  1. Purchase new dinghy
  2. Complete install of new GPS
  3. Sew new bug screens for hatches.
  4. Complete refinishing the interior wood.
  5. Refinish exterior wood.
  6. Install new cabin sole.
  7. Install solar system
  8. Install new lower bow running lights
  9. Replace broken hatch with new solar vent fan in head
  10. Reseal starboard salon window
  11. Paint Cabin trunk
  12. Kiwi Grip on top of cabin trunk
We hope to have the projects completed and all our personal items moved off Sunset Island in time to depart for the Bahamas by mid May.   Now lets get busy.
