Dutch Captain: Jacob de Boer
Jacob de Boer served the Admiralty of the Noorderkwartier. I have very little information about him, except we know that he fought in the Battle of Solebay, where he commanded the Jupiter (40 40 guns). In the battle, the Jupiter had 3 men killed and two severely wounded. The Jupiter was assigned to Van Ghent's squadron in the battle. The Jupiter was boarded and taken by the Royal Katherine, but was thought to be sinking, so was abandoned and recovered by the Dutch. Sources:
