has very few options. Yes Port Phaeton is restricted to draft
as you said. But if you anchor
and hire a person to keep an eye on things is an option.
You are leaving it pretty late trying to find a spot.
Papeete City Marina - We spent a summer here a few years ago. A small NW swell rolled in and docks started to break up. This was less than 1 foot by the time it got to the marina. We monitored lines for chafe every 3 hours and we also were looking after a friends cat and did the same. We still tossed 3 docklines away afterwards due to excessive shock loading. Some people just left boats and came thru unscathed. Would only do it as a last resort. And then hire a boat
watcher that is in the marina to look after your lines- the marina staff won’t be on the docks in any crappy weather
Taiana Marina is a better option but I understand they are booked out for summer already.
Raiatea is another option for haulout and long term storage
. The Carinage was already full for the summer when we were there in June. CNI may still have space
Apataki is another option for long stay dry storage
