Re: Moving 19' boat

Thank you very much for all the helpful advice. I've decided to go ahead and sail there. The problem with a trailer is A) I don't have one. B) I'd have to do a haul out, and the get help taking the mast down. Right now I keep the boat in Lake Union. So my first problem is going to be getting through the locks. After that I'll either stay in Seattle or cross over to Blakely as suggested. Bell Harbor is only $25 for the no big deal. I will definitely get a hold of a tide and current book and use the currents to my advantage. I really appreciate being advised to do that. Once I cross, my plan is to sail down behind Vashon Island to reach Gig Harbor. Then I'm going to have to haul out anyway, because (being in a lake) I've never painted the bottom. Talk about $$$. Thanks again. I guess it's time for this old man to have a little adventure.
