The Zeeuwsche Jager in May 1653

Captain Lourensz Crijnsz commanded the Zeeuwsche Jager in May 1653. I had, at one point, that that the Zeeuwsche Jager had been converted to a fireship for the Battle of the Gabbard, but that seems not to have been the case. A member of the Crijnssen family (or Crijnszoon) commanded the jacht in mid-1653. In May, the Zeeuwsche Jager carried 14 guns and had a crew of 54 men. Carl Stapel found that the Zeeuwsche Jager's largest guns were 6pdrs. Sources:
