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 Papeete 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.

Welding

Welding

The Yacht Club was able to source a TIG welder for our boat.  He took away our bow pulpit and did a fine job.  He apparently was not available to weld anything dockside. The price was maybe half of the cost for similar work in the eastern Caribbean.  The machine shop mentioned in another section can do stick (arch) welding.  Check Dynacier.
