Perhaps we can make some progress on the Admiralty of Zeeland in March 1653

De Jonge's list for March 1653 might be helpful in filling in missing information for the ships of the Admiralty of Zeeland. In March 1653, they had 15 States' ships and 3 hired ships in service. Two of the States' ships were jachts. Carl Stapel has already made a valiant effort to complete the list. I have found that I cannot account for all the ships that I believed to be in service in March 1653, and this is probably another example. For people who have studied the information previously, a number of ships are listed with fewer guns than normal, such as the Wapen van Zeeland. In any case, this is my version of the list, as given by De Jonge:
