Jan Hansen has identified this as the Coast Guard Cutter Midgett, sailing at a speed of 14.4 knots in the Shoreline Sea.

Wikipedia says USCGC Midgett (WHEC-726) is the twelfth and latest of the United States Coast Guard's fleet of 378 ft (115 m) high endurance cutters. With her crew of twenty four officers and one hundred sixty enlisted men and women, she is homeported in Seattle, Washington under the operational and administrative control of Commander, Pacific Area (COMPACAREA).

She was named for Chief Warrant Officer John Allen Midgett, Jr. and built in the Avondale shipyards on the Mississippi River in 1971.
