The crossing is 10min but can't comment on the rest as I went from Bali to gili via a stop at Lombok.

Hi R0b - I would be looking to stay in Mangsit or Senggigi as your jumping off point to the Gilis. Transfer time to Teluk Kode/Teluk Nara about 30-40 mins. If you're taking a speedboat, be prepared to get a bit wet.

When you say 'fast boat' do you mean the big boat that leaves from Senggigi pier or a speedboat?

There is a daily departure at 11am from Senggigi. Otherwise, as has been described in the post above, there is the speedboat option from Teluk Koded/Teluk Nare (crossing takes about 10 mins to Gilli T) and yes it can be a little choppy as we experienced on Saturday.
