We have shipped several packages to the UK with OPT which arrived in approx. 10 days; cost for t-shirt sized packages was around $14. After getting several quotes in the $400 range to courier our radio to a repair centre in the USA we decided to ship via OPT, FP mail system. The cost was $63, it was tracked and signed for but only up to the US border. The package took about 4 weeks to arrive in Florida. We also received a very small mailbag from the UK which took 5 weeks to arrive in Papeete. We used Marina Tahina as our receiving address invariably you must pick up packages from the OPT office after receiving notice of their arrival there was no fee for part which came free of customs charges but might have had a value of perhaps $100. If recieving parcels to Marinas best to put your name without the vessel name.
