An early 1700's Dutch ship Huis te Neck

Ron van Maanen has information about the Noorderkwartieir ship Huis te Neck was built in 1709. The Huis te Neck was built at Hoorn, although the exact date could hav been either 1709 or 1710, as there are apparently conflicting references. The Huis te Neck was finally discarded in 1740. Ron has the details, the exact figures vary according to the date of the source:
