I've done my best to intepret it, and I think I've got the gist of most parts. I've ignored bits that don't seem relevant.

Some interesting bits including holiday dates when locks are closed.

PS I accept no liability for anyone relying on it for the trip
Thanks! But Ribnet doesn't like the file for some reason

I phoned Le Havre Marina this morning. They sell diesel, regular unleaded (95 octane) and super unleaded (98 octane). The pumps are open 24/24 and accept credit cards. I forgot to ask if there's a limit to how much you can buy, but I'm assuming there won't be. It's still an absolute 'no go' with the little lady I'm afraid; but I'm working my charms on her(!).

This is interesting, but still no guarantee using UK credit cards in France

And this

In France, for example, magnetic-stripe cards aren't recognized by newer railroad ticket machines and self-service gasoline pumps

A wad of euros and a frenchman clutching his credit card is all you need to get around this little problem.

Time well spent by the looks of it. Is there a way to get all those points listed as lat/lon to put into the GPS?

I could also use them to make a chart up.

Encapsulated for your pleasure.

How do I get hold of your map, is it on your website?
