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.

There are a couple of the TFH shops in Papeete.  One is in Fare Ute & one is in Tipaerui. They have mobile vans(3) that can come to your boat 7 days a week.  I spoke with one of the workers and he said they have both Metric and imperial fittings (not confirmed)
