Looks like slack water before ebb at the Narrows is around 0900 hrs. That gives you a favorable current for around 5 hours or so. I measure about 28 nm from the bridge to the locks through Clovis Passage and 32 nm around the east side of Vashon. Figure 5 knot speed, maybe 6 knots and that gives you between 5 and 6 hours travel time between the bridge and the locks.
