Long Shot - ?Trawler/Lifeboat? Wreck Keills Danna, Mid Argyll

Hi, wondering if anyone has any idea of anything of this wreck, seen in Loch na Cille, which is in between Keills and Danna, near Tayvallich, Mid Argyll, approx grid ref 700 807.

Afraid, I can't tell you any more than that, aside it has been there for years, surprise, surprise

Looks like might be a trawler, but perhaps old lifeboat?

Thanks for looking.

Jimmy
