    The small drum on one rail is hydraulic powered and used to haul a net aboard. Probably a gillnet or setnet of some sort, maybe a seine.

    The boat in the original post is Rara Avis, a Thames Barge hull designed by Phillip Rhodes and built 1957. The three-masted rig was intended for a small crew.
