I have made significant progress on the Dutch OOB for the Battle of the Gabbard
I am in the process of "filling in" ship and captain names into the list outline that I have from an unpublished manuscript from July 1653. The document lists the 105 ships that took part in the Battle of the Gabbard, but has very few names. Using the breakdown by admiralty, and the information about the fate of ships in the list, it is pretty easy to know exactly what ship is listed, in many cases.
