Consider my gob thoroughly smacked, I didn't think this would do ten minutes.

I can tell you it originally had two identical transoms. Engine beds:

Been away for a while and still no result. It is, of course, the two sterned boat that used to run the Bodinnick Ferry, it was strapped alongside a pontoon, had two Lister engines, with one gearstick linked to both, so one ahead, one astern. I wonder if it was brought to Helford by sea.
