2 stroke outboards in France lakes?

Are there any restrictions on using such things? I have a wee 3.3HP I can put on my inflatable catamaran but not sure if it would be a problem, anyone know what the rules are?

thought I had read that but google did not confirm so I thought consulting the knowledge banks on here would be the best idea!

OK, might be worth popping it in the boot then! Will see how much room is left when we get there!
