Could be, but if true, why didn't the OP mention Horns, trains, planes and the like. No, he is definitely fed up with the noise ferries make, hence the title of his post.

Greetings,
Mr. Rick B. I think the origin of the high pitched whining noise is on the west coast of NA somewhere.....

Whining noise? We used to say here that if a loud whining noise continued from a 747 arriving from the UK after the engines were closed down, it was likely carrying English immigrants.
The OP lives near a working harbour with all its features,noise incl, to be reasonably expected. Nice if it stopped, doubt it will.
