Hendrick Pieterszoon's ship in 1653

Mr. Carl Stapel saw a listing in A. Vreugdenhil's notes for the ship belonging to Hendrik Pieterszoon in 1653. The listing in Vol.I of The First Dutch War has him reporting to the Monnikendam directors. Dr. Elias, on p.94 of Vol.V of Schetsen uit de Geschiedenis van ons Zeewezen has him commanding the Halve Maen that was captured at the Battle of the Gabbard. This is the note from Vreugdenhil:
F-dir Man van Eden ? guns  Hendrik Pietersz  1653
This indicates a ship belonging to directors from Friesland (Harlingen?).
