Ships building for the admiralty at Harlingen

On 30 January 1653, Witte de With's journal lists three ships building for the admiralty at Harlingen, the Admiralty of Friesland. We actually have a pretty good idea about the identity of these three ships:
A ship with dimensions 140ft x 36ft x 14-1/2ft (the Oostergoo)

A ship with dimensions 134ft x 34ft x 14ft (the Westergoo)

A ship with dimensions 122ft x 28-1/2ft x 12ft (the Zevenwolden)
