No idea what might be there. In most of the white areas it's nothing.
most things are soundproofed pretty well and most folks aren't bothered by brief sounds such as the winding gear for the ropes at the dock, (fore and aft.) That lasts just a few minutes at most. Obviously it bothered the original poster, but...
If I were you, I wouldn't worry about it too much. There are always noises when a ship docks and they may be louder if you are lower down and closer to either the bow or the back of the ship. Short lived ship sounds are to be expected and don't cause much grief for most people. How's that for diplomacy?
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
