Hopefully Antoine is going to contact a local Mercury agent based 30km away from the boat. If we can get them to carry out the necessary repairs then I will get a ferry and train back to the boat and continue my mission to get M2 to Paris.
I could do with a crew to join me if and when this does happen, Channel Ribs has already kindly offered his services
If anyone else feels they missed out then here's a 2nd chance without having to do the full mileage. If you can get yourself to Conflans St. Honorine I'll cover fuel/hotel costs etc if you pay for your meals and drinks.
It'll take half a day to get to Paris, I'd like to stay for 2 nights there (there's so much to see and do), then it takes 3 days motoring to get back to Le Havre so you'll need a week off work at short notice.
From here there's a slow boat to Portsmouth and a fast (3hr) cat as of 26th May.
PM me if you're interested and note I did say crew not passengers!
