Ships in service for the Admiralty of Friesland in March 1653

If anything, the picture seems obscured with regard to which Friesland ships were still in service in March 1653. J. C. De Jonge, in an appendix to Vol.I of Geschiedenis van het Nederlandsche Zeewezen has an outline of the list. That outline omits mention of ships either known to be in service or at least mentioned in Ron van Maanen's list. This is the outline:
