blow a hooley
 v. phr.— «Awoke early and felt the rig rolling slightly, bacon roll and paperwork in hand, I opened the watertight door onto the maindeck to find it raining and blowing a hooley…the wind is so strong it is beating the waves flat…got to be 35—45 knots at the moment!» —“Day VII” The Ships Cat Apr. 22, 2006.
