Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Alternator And Starter Repairs

Alternator and Starter Shop


Small alternator and starter shop on Tipaerui road.  No sign but look for row of white tour buses on the west side of road (right).  The shop is behind the buses.  Speaks no english but has a test bench and is knee deep in old parts.  Would not charge to test alternator.
Sorry no phone.
