I need to spend more time studying De Sneuper
I learned some new things from De Sneuper in the last few days. My assessment is that I need to spend more time studying what is there and translating it to English so that I can better read the material. The ship list is useful, in itself. The list of captains is just as useful, if not more so. For example, I learned that Jan Coenders was restored by the Admiralty of Friesland, after being courtmartialed, and that his yacht had the guns fall through the deck, due to the general poor condition of the vessel.
