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.

32 Avenue du Chef ValraatoaBP 327 - 98713 - Papeete

Large Hardware Store with some marine paints
Diagnol Across from the fire station on the road to Ocean 2000
Corner of Ave du Chef Vaira'atoa & Rue des Remparts Entrance is around the back.

From what I gather it's a general purpose hardware store that has a
selection of marine stuff including bottom paint (International brand.
Possibly others?)
