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.

Michael Lichon at Gondrand 68940543164 was very efficient, speaks good English and works closely with UPS.  They are just behind the Mc Donalds near Marina Papeete. We received a  package from Defender in the USA weighing approximately 10lb value $760, shipping cost with UPS was $82, shipping time just prior to Christmas was about eight days including customs time here and the customs agent fee was $120 (2x $60 which include clearance out of FP when the time comes.)  He also allowed us to receive a new passport there at no charge.
