> Wharf (US English) and Quay (British English) seem to be equivalent and describe a fixed structure that has land on one side and water on the other, but the French môle or brise-lames is different: it is a structure that protrudes into the water, but is normally narrow and often there is not even a walkway on it.

is most definitely "wharf" and not narrow at all.
