Ron van Maanen has the dimensions of the Vrede (1653) in Maas feet

I like to see examples where we have the dimensions for a ship in both Maas feet (12 inches per foot) and Amsterdam feet (11 inches per foot). I noticed that Ron van Maanen lists the dimensions for the Rotterdam frigate Vrede (1653) in both measures:
The frigate Vrede

In Maas feet:
Length:  101-3/4ft       Beam:  25ft     Hold:  11ft

In Amsterdam feet:
Length:  111ft           Beam:  27ft-3in Hold:  12ft
