A.  All docks where seagoing vessels are to be secured must be equipped with proper cleats, kevels, bollards, mooring posts, or similar devices for the ready and safe securing of such vessels as may be moored alongside; and all such fastenings must be kept clear at all times.  No cargo or goods or articles of any kind shall be unloaded, loaded, or piled near such fastenings which might preclude quick access to them and no fastenings shall be made to any other part of any structure at any time which may endanger such structure in any way.  All dock openings must have fences or barricades when not in use.
