I wouldn't know, because in 4 attempts I've never made it to Port Davey. Spent a good chunk of time at Recherche Bay, and even ended up in Stanley once. Closest I got was being dropped on the beach at Cox's Bight and walking out.Not to mention staying in a secure anchorage when the weather is looking shit. That can mean 2-3 weeks if you go to Port Davey before you get out again, or hanging in Recerche Bay waiting to *get* to Port Davey.
Does not managing to make it some where point to good seamanship or cowardice?
But coming from Tas, I have been stunned by some of the barges that are considered sea worthy in SE Asia. One trip we were to be at sea for a couple of weeks in an old trawler style boat I wouldn't have crossed from Dover to Brunty on. But it was fine for that place and time.
