Yes, once. On a flat calm, clear day and in a 28-knot boat. Took 4 hours, only because we stopped to watch a pod of humpbacks for a half hour.
I never expect to be able to do that again!
I've also taken the ferry between Portland and Yarmouth a couple of times. Both were pretty rough crossings, but it was early in the season.
One tip, let Fundy Traffic Control know as you get underway. They'll see you anyway, and even though recreational boats aren't required to check in, you might as well save them the trouble of calling you.
