Big rib down to the estuaries then crane the jetski in for the shallow bit?!
That's it in a nutshell. Jetskiing to France, even when supported by a rib, would be something you'd do only on the calmest of days but if I got a bigger boat (e.g., a Ribcraft 10.5 or 12m) with a crane and a cradle then the ski could go in the boat and I could unload it in Granville and then Bob's your uncle - more power and more glory.
A friend of mine came around this afternoon to deliver some firewood and his truck had a Maxilift crane that could lift over a tonne but which was really small and only weighed 350kg itself. Posh jet skis weigh about 480kg so obviously you'd need a big rib. Santa, are you reading this??
