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.

Lee Sui has two locations. One is a small but very convenient hardware if you’re at the Marina Papeete. It is a block off the main road along the harbour Blvd Pomare and a couple blocks towards the market from Prince Hanoi.

The second shop is on Avenue George Clemenceau maybe 250meter east of the big traffic circle (three blocks from the waterfront).  General hardware but also carry 2 part poly urathane and other paints.  Reasonable selecttion of tools.
