Items wish you had packed more of

You are standing in a store in Papeete, looking at the goods available and the price tags and you wish you had brought more of.....what?
I plan to sail to the Marquesas and I have some (not much) extra space. What should I stock up on????

Thanks,

SimonV will become famous soon enough
Wine, hard cheese, engine spares, filters, spare prop for the outboard ( I broke mine on coral and they charged over $200 for a $70 prop back home) In fact if you need to buy anything there ....your F**ked. They did have a good price on the cuban Cigs though. If you can plan on having all you need until the cook islands as everythin comes from NZ or better wait u ntil Fiji.

Thanks for the replies. Hard cheese and TP are great suggestions.

The hypermarche in Papeete is incredible. Not knowing your budget, it is a great spot to buy some 'goodies', things you don't normally see. We bought some canned duck (4 quarters in a large can). Each can was two meals for us and provided a nice change along the way. Hardly a necessity, but worthwhile having. There were also some incredible sausages there. We bought one with hazelnuts in it - oh to live in where there is easy access to real French food.

Wine might be a problem, anyplace. Alcohol "imports" tend to be taxed and regulated, check ahead before you stock up.

We have never had a problem with wine/beer/liquor when entering more than 20 countries. Not sure you want to buy any really good wines and then shake them up for a couple of weeks though.
