Re: Moving 19' boat

I sail puget sound, the distance by water is closer to 30 miles, a long day at about 3-4 knots but it could be ok. A nice option would be to spend the night about 1/2 way at Blake Island either at the marina on the east side or at the park bouys. Both can fill up on weekends so get an early start. Currents secondary to tides can be enough to slow progress, so planning your rip on a flood is a good plan.
