my husband and I just returned from a 3 week trip in Tahiti. we visited two island group-Raiatea and Rangioroa. Besides the HORRENDOUS bugs when the wind dies, this trip has soared to the top of my favorite destinations. Anybody have other experiences in Tahiti?

Yes, Tahiti's a wonderful place. My wife's from Tahiti. We've spent two summers there, once in '85 and once in '97. We're due another trip there. My two previous trips I was hindered by the lack of a decent canoe or kayak. I'm bringing a folder next time. The hassle will be in manhandling the folder from water to house which will not be on the waterfront. What boat were you using? How did it interact with the coral in the lagoons?

My husband and I both have feathercraft K-1 Now almost 25 years old, they have weathered our trips extremely well. Yes we have hit some coral occasionally. But nothing major. That said we both have some patches on the keel area.
