It could at best make France fall a turn early (or maybe even not, randomness does play a role). For the price of a single corps, they can give 5 escorts (200 PP) to the UK as a gift (so up to 8 counting the 3 from start) for maybe no effect on fall of France. And the rule that France can not lend-lease was obviously there to stop players from siphoning France's PP in favor of the UK Since the UK does need escorts and would have build them if necessary, then this rule is as good as erased and France can therefore now leand-lease to the UK.
Was so hard to balance the BOA, and it is, I thing, more or less ok now, but this, I have no doubt, breaks it again.
But yes, the shipyards fix could be perfect. Add a submarine coming in January or something like that. It will take 10 of the 11 shipyards left. One French escort extra going to the UK is ok, not BOA breaker, and not illogical for the French to have build... Options should still be there, just not the overly unrealistic ones or game breaking ones.
