Assuming you have your ICC (you can apply for it with no test assuming you've done PBII) for the sea, and the CEVNI endorsement (online test ~£30) for inland then you should be fine.
In France the "sans permis" limit is 6hp but assuming you fly an ensign then technically they can't ask you for anything at all. Better to be safe though
