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.

Ian on SV Fandango suggested this electrical supply on the short street with ACE hardware in Fare Ute. I visited there and got a quote on 6V golf cart gel cells. Vision brand made in china, rated 220 AHr at 20hr rate. They delivered to my dinghy and by day's end, Coastal Drifter was re-powered, DC-wise! I spoke french but I think they have at least one person able to speak english.
