A ship named Hollandia, hired in 1642

The ship Hollandia, hired by the Admiralty of Amsterdam, was one of the larger ships. Carl Stapel had sent me copies of pages with the data on these ships. These are the details for the Hollandia. This is one of the few ships that I know how the guns were arranged:
