Heading south it was so bad we could barely make headway; it was one of those "too late to turn back" times. We and a couple other boats struggled to the lee of Trail Islands, sat in Davis Bay for about an hour and it calmed right down.
Going the other way, same thing off Cape Cockburn with a howler coming out of Jervis Inlet. Once we made it past Scotch Fir Pt. again it flattened out.
