So I turned off and on again, gives about 30 secs before back into limp home mode. Read the etec owners forum and decided the best thing to do was pump the oil line bulb which I did, forcing tons of oil into the engine (and proving the integrity of the system) but creating massive smoke clouds and dumping loads into the sea. Engine started to run roughly (probably due to excess oil) so Blue Ray towed it into Cherbourg where is now sits waiting for the engineer to have a look come Thursday (bank holiday tomorrow, bloke not in on monday, didn't have time today...)

It is better off there than here because there are two dealers within the port where as down here there are none so it is not a complete disaster, just don't want it sat in the water too long in a marina

We made it back OK though. Bit choppy on Monday coming back from Cherbourg, but the wind was straight behind us and with the tide so it was just big swell really.
Short video of the trip to follow shortly.

What time did you leave? We visited the harbour a few times but missed any activity.
