Dutch row-jachts in 1635
I keep going back into Dr. Elias' book Vlootbouw in Nederland, looking for nuggets that I might have previously missed (probably, I see things that I have previously seen but forgotten about). Today, on page 48, at the top of the page, I read about the "roeyjacht" Bommel. The data is from 5 February 1635, from the Resolutions of the Admiralty of Amsterdam.
