Phil Allen of Jamestown works on his boat Pimpernel on Wednesday at East Ferry. The boat is a 1974 Chris Craft 22-foot Tournament Fisherman. Allen said he first met the boat when he was 8 years old and saw the boat in Great Salt Pond on Block Island. A couple of years ago he discovered to vessel abandoned in Bristol. Allen, who works as a tugboat skipper in the New York City Harbor, rescued the boat and has restored it to its nautical glory. Photo by Jeff McDonough 001p1_xlg.jpg
