The Dutch jacht Ruiter, taken by the English at Lowestoft

Ron van Maanen has the dimensions for the jacht Ruiter that was captured by the English at the Battle of Lowestoft. I do not have the captain's name along, but perhaps I can add that later. The Ruiter later served in the English navy as the flyboat Horseman. The Dutch dimensions were 95ft x 24-1/2ft x 10-1/2ft with a height between decks of 5-3/4ft. The Ruiter carried 18 guns and had a crew of between 60 and 65 men. This was a former East India company ship. Sources:
