Following the coastline along WA and Oregon (within about 100NM) will give you a following current of between 1-2kts. Where you head West will depend on the high pressure zone between CA and Hawaii, it moves around. Most everyone, including large fishing boats follow the inside route from SE Alaska at least to the north end of Van. Is. From there it's a weather decision about inside or out.
