I'm counting on the shaking from the 9+ CSZ megaquake of 3 - 5 minutes to provide a sufficient alert.  :bigshock:

If you are on the water, you aren't going to feel even that! A friend was on the Quinalt when the Nisqually quake occured. They knew something was up as there were numerous small landslides creating alot of dust.

I was on the Sound one day when a seiche rolled through. Very large strange wave. Did some damage in Portage Bay. That was from a quake in Alaska.

The above link will get you information just about anytime there is a large earthquake anywhere. As you know a Tsunami could be generated by an Earthquake  anywhere in the Pacific. Given enough time you may be able to get your boat out of the water and make it to high ground.
