The Schellinghout

Ron van Maanen had listed a ship named Schellinghout (or Schellinkhout) hired by the Enkhuizen Directors. He even had the dimensions: 127ft x 26ft x 12-1/2ft, with a height between decks of 6ft. Carl Stapel has found that this is the ship commanded by Jacob Claesz Duijm, which is more commonly known as the Vergulde Zon (or Vergulde Sonne, old style). Sources:
  1. Ron van Maanen, unpublished manuscript "Dutch Warships 1600-1800", undated, but circa 1992
  2. Carl Stapel, unpublished manuscript "directieschepen 16 mei 1652", 2006
