A mystery boat at Chatham

I saw and photographed (very poorly, I’m afraid) this interesting double-ended working boat in a corner of a shed at The Historic Dockyard Chatham but couldn’t find any information or anyone who could tell me about it.

It’s clearly meant for fishing, as it has a live well, and a wonderfully tattered spritsail. But what is it? A Medway doble? A peterboat? Answers by email please to gmatkin@gmail.com – I’d love to know!
