Small Rotterdam ships with the fleet in May 1653

Witte de With's journal for May 1653 lists three small Rotterdam ships that were with the fleet. The listing is significant as it provides guns and crew size, which are absent from the published literature:
Adm Ship                   Guns Crew Commander
R   Haij, advijs jacht      6    14  Teunis Willemsz van de Henden
R   Coninck David, fireship 6    14  Jacob Arenszoon
R   Orangieboom, fireship   6    13  Dirck Jansz Stroo
