A spurt of new information
I am experiencing one of the spurts of information that periodically happen. The wild thing is that more is on the way, in the form of the letters and journals of Witte de With, from Sweden. Typically, it can take several years to really digest the new information. One of my goals is to compile a complete list of Dutch warships used in the First Anglo-Dutch War, including dimensions, with the "height above hold", and lists of guns carried. It is likely that project cannot be totally completed, at least until someone perfects a timemachine (at least some of the information may not exist anymore).
