I'm still fascinated by the "Man van Edam"
Mr. Carl Stapel found the information about Hendrick Pieterszoon's ship that Schaap called the "Man van Edam". The dimensions given, interestingly enough are about those of the Resolution (Prince Royal) that fought on the English side in the First Anglo-Dutch War. I intend to check the copy of the manuscript for the list of ships at Vlissingen in July 1653, to see if I can find anything more about the issue of Harlingen Directors vs. Edam Directors vs. Monnikendam Directors vs. Admiralty of Friesland.
