Fair enough. I agree with your jetty/pier descriptions then . However boats tie up to both jetties and piers, as well as wharves. My description of a wharf would include something indicating "running parallel to the coast/river bank" as opposed to jutting out into the water. 

The ferry 'wharves' at Circular Quay in Sydney are perpendicular to the shore.  Although I haven't heard them so described for many years, they were once also referred to as jetties.
