Cockpit Tent?

I just purchased a used Sanderling.  This nicely made canvas came with it.  Is it some sort of a cockpit tent?  If so, how do you get it around the lazy jacks?

Looks like nice construction , how long is the ridge ? Could it be a boat cover, with the mast down?
If short enough for a cockpit tent (9 ft or so), two options 1) it is designed to mount under the boom - would expect some extra tabs along the ridge for support, 2) goes over boom, as a ridge pole, and need to undo lazyjacks and peak halyard block.

in my opinion with lazy jacks that cover will not work. need a two-piece cover that uses snaps/turnbuckles along the ridge' (ie, boom) and slots in the cover for the lines to run. maybe at one time the boat didn't have lazy jacks?

Rest the boom on a boom crutch. Free the lazy jacks and install your beautiful cockpit tent.
Happy Days,
