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.

From SV Larka

Have just completed 12 day haul out for bottom paint etc.

Can highly recommend Yvan and his team (87 74 85 60). Very careful with 
haulout on hydraulic propped trailer (no boat hoist)

Also excellent engineer - Patrick Heintre 87 300 625 
(multi-meca@mail.pf) has lathe facilities and spares for Perkins engines.

Supermarket 2k away, chandlers 3k, with v large Ace hardware store another 1k.

Best to buy requirements from Michel B at Tiana Marina (87 74 10 02) 
and/or in Papeete and arrive there fully stocked.

It rains there occasionally!
