Re: Moving 19' boat
Sounds like a good plan. You can pick up tide and current booklets for very little $ at places like WM, although just doing a search online and printing the days you need would work. Bring extra gas for the outboard, this time of year wind can be very light. Also, take a look at the Ballard locks rules on the web, there are some specific things regarding mooring lines etc. Overall it should be a fun safe trip.
Take a look at a chart for puget sound or a GPS with maps and depths. Most of the Sound is very deep, but the area around the locks is not and I have seen many boats aground there over the years.
