Re: Puget Sound vs Lake Washington
With 30' you should not have an issue at the bridges. even off to the sides. IIRC montlake has the lowest to the side at around 37, most are pretty levelish side to side. Freemont, yes you will have issues, then again, quite a few boats, both power and sail have to rise it at 28'! I've seen J24's raising it!
