Now that is certainly one of Thomas Clayton's Motor Boats, and in this picture, the crew are actually poling it along the canal. I suspect that the canal, at this point in time, was so neglected, it had become almost impassable for powered boats. The engine isn't being used,as there is no wake, so they must have been afraid of fouling the prop.
