Have you ever shipped items to French Polynesia?

We are currently writing a paper called "Shipping Items to FP about the various ways to ship parts and boat items purchased or ordered from abroad into FP. This helpful resource document will be available to the cruising community on our website https://www.jacarandajourney.com/other-good-stuff under French Polynesia

Wed like to get your input and comments about your experiences
What items have you shipped into FP by either airfreight or by sea? When?
Are you a foreign boat that has been imported (papeetized) or not?
Where were the items shipped from and where were they shipped to (Marina, Postal Restante, Agent, etc.)?

Did you use "Yacht in Transit" on the shipping label or not?
If you used a freight forwarder when parts were ordered, who did you use?(Used when shipping by sea)
If you used a customs agent in FP, who did you use?
If you used a yacht agent to clear the items from customs, who did you use?

Any lessons learned or tips would be very helpful.

Please contact me at chuckhoulihan (at) hotmail dot com

Thanks in advance for your information.
