The VOC ship Prins Willem
I think that Herbert Tomessen, of Artitec, thinks that the VOC ship Prins Willem had dimensions of about 170ft x 38ft x 18ft. Ron van Maanen gives just the length, which he says is 181ft. That almost seems like the length from Herman Ketting's book about the Prins Willem ship model. Herbert Tomessen (I hope that I have the spelling correct) wrote me saying that while he liked Herman Ketting's book, that he had the dimensions wrong.
