The Witte Eenhoorn

The ship Witte Eenhoorn (or Hoorn, or Eenhoorn) was apparently a ship we knew about, of the standard Noorderkwartier dimensions for 120ft ships: 120ft x 27ft x 11ft. Ron van Maanen says that the ship was in service from 1636 until 1672. One new piece of information is that the height over hold was 6-1/2ft. Ron van Maanen does not list it, but we know the armament in July 1654 from the Staet van Oorlog te Water for 1654:
32 guns:
 6-iron 12pdr
20-iron  8pdr
 2-brass 6pdr
 2-iron  6pdr
 2-iron  4pdr
