dolphin (???) fender (???) [THIS, HOWEVER, IS NOT A SURE ANSWER, BUT A WILD ROUGH GUESS ONLY!]
Explanation:
Unfortunately, professional sailors and harbor masters hardly ever visit this professional translators' site, while professional translators seldom know everything about ships and harborage.

It's been quite some time now since your query was posted and noone has ventured to come up with a suggested answer yet, so I'll give it a try.

Certainly, without SOME context at least it is even more difficult to know what we are shooting at here.

Yet, I guess the word you may be looking for is DOLPHIN.

1. DOLPHIN - a mooring spar or buoy furnished with a ring to which boats may fasten their cables;
2. DOLPHIN - a mooring post on a wharf or beach - called also bollard;
3. DOLPHIN - a cluster of piles driven into the bottom of a harbor and bound firmly together for the mooring of boats;
4. DOLPHIN - a permanent fender around a heavy boat just below the gunwale;
5. DOLPHIN - a cluster of piles to which a boom is secured (as for protecting a bridge pier)

I believe the things above referred to as "dolphin" in the English-language mooring terminology are known as "larga" in the Slavic-language harborage jargon because of the relation to the Russian word larga for spotted seal (Phoca largha; Phoca vitulina). Or may be not.

Anyway, you may find it useful going to and surfing through the following web-sites with a view to making your own informed choices as to which is the word you are specifically looking for in your case:

1. http://www.ship-technology.com/

2. http://www.ship-technology.com/contractors/port/fender/index... - FENDER CARE LTD - FLOATING PNEUMATIC RUBBER FENDERS

Here's just an excerpt from such site which I believe relates to your word in question:
"APPLICATIONS -
The primary purpose for all fendering is protection of vessels and berths. Fender Care believes that Yokohama pneumatic fenders offer the greatest level of protection and, in addition to this, the products enormous flexibility in both installation and application, whether being used as ship to quay, ship to ship or as a vessels onboard system, provides a superb fendering solution.
Traditionally the fenders are moored horizontally and fitted against a solid wall, whether granite, concrete or sheet piling.They can also be effectively moored against open piled quay structures, single pile, multiple piles or timber backboards.The fenders normally float with the tides and are able to cope with any tidal range. However, they can also be fixed, where there are minimal tides."
