I'd time the passage avoid peak current through Quick's Hole, otherwise you should have an easy time of it. It isn't a big concern, but I've taken some green water over the deck coming out of Quick's Hole on the Buzzards Bay side. The bottom comes up in the vicinity of Lone Rock and can make things sloppy in this area when the tide is running. You could also simply swing wide around Lone Rock to avoid the slop in these conditions.
