Old waterfront restaurant with a ship as a bar/lounge?

I am trying to find the name of a restaurant at Boston's Warf from the 1980's (at least - probably earlier) when I lived there.

It was right on the water and had a "dry docked" ferry/boat attached that they used as a bar or lounge while you waited for the loudspeaker to call your name that a table was ready. There's a pretty good chance it's gone by now with all of that they have done in the region.

It could have been Anthony's Pier 4 or Jimmy's Harborside or some other establishment. It had been there for a long time and was similar in style with the large dining room, old, fisherman decor (lots of spoked sailing wheels) with traditional seafood cuisine (fried food and tartar sauce). It was not trendy in the least bit but my parents, products of the 50's would have thought it was "famous" and high end.

The images I can view online do not show a ship that appeared to be in the water, next to the dock but definitely did not move or float.

Ring any bells?
