Well, the engineer turned up at 1430 rather than 0900 and spent an hour getting the engine out into the saloon.
He then packed up his things and disappeared. We thought he would be back shortly to remove the engine to their workshop. Wrong. By 1700 there was still no sign so we rang the office to be told that they would be back on Tuesday as Monday is a public holiday. I then informed them that we couldn’t actually get out of the boat as the engine was where the steps normally are. Eventually they agreed to come back and move it, which they did. It is still on the boat but at least we can get out without climbing out of a hatch every time!
So, we now have another French bank holiday with a broken engine still on board and I suspect at least another week before we will know anything. Frustrating beyond belief.
I knew the French had their 35hour working week. But I didn’t realise in Brittany it is only 1 hr a day
Quite. All really nice chaps but work life balance gone a bit mad when you’re the customer!
I still find it hard to believe when I turn up at a huge DIY store or big supermarket and have to wait 20 minutes because I’ve forgotten that whilst the school lunch “hour” is 11:30 to 1:30 the shops often shut from 12 till 2pm. Hope it gets sorted on Tuesday. xxx Jill
