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.

Nuts, Bolts, Screws, Fasteners

Magazine Tavita

Another option in town for fastners is Magazine Tavita, 40429971 which is north east of the Cathedral on the same street. They carry half  fishing tackle  and half fastners.  Besides metric stainless bolts and screws they also carry imperial both UNC and UNF.  There is some imperial stainless but for engines and transmissions there is both UNC and UNF steel.
