I found a reference to these boats at the Kent History forum that might be of some use.

"In 1808, Muddle's shipyard built an as yet unknown 50ft Gunboat. The reason that the identity of the particular Gunboat is unknown is that the Admiralty ordered a batch 85 of these boats for the Scheldt Campaign, but that none of them were assigned names or numbers until they had been delivered. Hence, Edward Muddle knew that he had built one, he just didn't know which one. The 1808 pattern Gunboat was a vessel of 41 tons. They were 50'7" long and 14'2" wide. They were armed with 2 18pdr long guns, one in the bow and one in the stern."
