Boret Alexandre

Contacted La Rochelle town hall re birth records for Alexandre Boret born circa 1829 son of Pierre Boret a blacksmith. They couldn't find him.
He gives La Rachelle (I presume an enumerator error) as his place of birth on a UK census. Am wondering if he's just given the nearest large town. Anyone got any ideas where else I could try to find him.
Have also tried the Maritime Museum at La Rochelle as he worked as a rigger but they hold no personal records. I haven't a clue as to where I would look for the French equivalent of a seamans ticket or even if there are such things. Could anyone give me some tips as I'm stumped.
Many thanks.
