Surely the absolute ultimate solution would be "Le Grand Bleu" off of which you deployed the 40ft Fairline which motored you in closer and then deployed one of those Protector Jetski-Rib things from which you shed the RIB collar and then motored right in

Seems a little extreme just to get to MSM though?

I know what your saying, but Jersey to the bay of Mont St. Michel would be a long way in a 4m rib; it's a long way even in a 6.8m rib when it's blowing hard.
There was an old RIB who swallowed a tender.
I dunno why she swallowed that tender,
Perhaps she'll sink.

There was an old RIB who swallowed a Jetski,
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the Jetski to catch the tender.
But I dunno why she swallowed that tender -
Perhaps she'll sink.

There was an RIB who swallowed a Searider;
How absurd, to swallow a Searider!
She swallowed the Searider to catch the Jetski
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the Jetski to catch the tender.
But I dunno why she swallowed that tender -
Perhaps she'll sink.

There was an RIB who swallowed a Humber.
Imagine that, she swallowed a Humber.
She swallowed the Humber to catch the Searider ...
She swallowed the Searider to catch the jetski
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the jetski to catch the tender.
But I dunno why she swallowed that tender
Perhaps she'll sink.

There was an RIB who swallowed a Ribeye.
What a hog! To swallow a Ribeye!
She swallowed the Ribeye to catch the Humber...
She swallowed the Humber to catch the Searider ...
She swallowed the Searider to catch the Jetski
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the Jetski to catch the Tender.
But I dunno why she swallowed that Tender
Perhaps she'll sink.

There was an RIB who swallowed a Ribcraft.
Just opened her throat and swallowed a Ribcraft!
She swallowed the Ribcraft to catch the Ribeye ...
She swallowed the Ribeye to catch the Humber.
She swallowed the Humber to catch the Searider ...
She swallowed the Searider to catch the Jetski
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the Jetski to catch the Tender.
But I dunno why she swallowed that Tender
Perhaps she'll sink.

There was an RIB who swallowed a Osprey.
I don't know how she swallowed a Osprey!
She swallowed the Osprey to catch the Ribcraft...
She swallowed the Ribcraft to catch the Ribeye...
She swallowed the Ribeye to catch the Humber...
She swallowed the Humber to catch the Searider ...
She swallowed the Searider to catch the Jetski
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the Jetski to catch the Tender.
But I dunno why she swallowed that Tender
Perhaps she'll sink.

There was an RIB who swallowed a Halmatic -
She's sunk, of course.

GG, all that money on education and there are still a few school-boy errors in there! However if we can get them fixed, then you can probably submit this as legitiamite coursework for GCSE English!

Firstly, after the first verse you stop referring to her as an "old" RIB and therefore the correct indefinite article is simple a not an.

Secondly, you've lost the rhyme found in the original nursery rhyme. e.g. fly -- die; bird -- absurd, etc...

Yeah yeah I know! The reason is that after the first verse I got bored writing it out by hand and simply did find & replace, you don't expect me to have written that off by heart do you

I didn't bother doing the rhyming 'cos I wasn't sure what the reaction to it would be. As it appears to be positive, I'll have a think about some couplets maybe
