From our boat library of guides and stuff we have collected over the years when we could cruise - we have found a rare gem. An out-of-print copy of Marcia Davock's - Cruising Guide to Tahiti and the French Society Islands. It is a spiral bound, well worn, but very usable

Cruising Guide to Tahiti and the French Society Islands - $35.00 (plus postage)
Wescott Cove Publishing Company, 1985 - 272 pages
Everything you need to know about this South Seas paradise: Tahiti, Moorea, Huahine, Raiatea, Tahaa, Bora Bora, and other smaller isles. Details: 272 pages, 90 harbor charts, 163 photos, 26 diagrams, street maps of major settlements, folded regional and general charts.
This is an "Out-of-Print" copy that I have kept from my incredible experience sailing and cruising around the French Society Islands and Tahiti many years ago.
It was a "once in a lifetime" experience that even today I can vividly remember. The guide is not longer available but little of anything has changed there especially the harbors and passes. Included with the guide is a folded up nautical chart of the entire Society Islands group. If nothing else this is a book to wet your appetite and spark your desire to get sailboat and go there and cruise.
You can buy a "new" preserved copy for only $294.10 at Barnes and Noble. We are only asking $35.00 plus media mail postage (approx $5).
