We had 200 feet of chain attached to lots of rope but would have liked to have had 250 or 300. The only place you mention that has good and cheap shopping is Fiji, Suva in particular. There is an absolutely incredible hypermarche in Papeete, and a good market, but not cheap. We did not go to Tonga so no comment there.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
