Carl Stapel's list for May to June 1653 has Joost Bulter's ship
I am processing lists for my comprehensive Dutch ship document, and I started on Carl Stapel's list from 20 June 1653, which lists ships from 8 May until 20 June 1653, including ships lost at the Battle of the Gabbard. Carl lists Joost Bulter's ship as the Stadt en Ommelanden, which is what I would have expected. Ron van Maanen says that the armament varied between 28 and 38 guns, as a list from Carl from April 1653 gives the armament as 38 guns.
