Updated version of the June 1653 document

I have a list of ships and some of the captains for ships from about June 1653. There is a very similar list in The First Dutch War, Vol.V, that is from Thurloe's state papers, Vol.I, page 287. This the updated version of that list, slightly reformatted. The reference to the Noorderkwartier ship Fasant van Medemblick is still a mystery,but I think that the captain is Jan Rootjes. The document that this is from is Nationaal Archief 1.03.02 inv. nr. 3 II. The list is ordered by Admiralty/Directors:
Admiralty of Amsterdam

Commander:                      Ship                Guns Crew
kapitein Jan van Campen         Overissel           30   114
kapitein Overcamp               Pelicaen            24   110
kapitein van den Bos            Engel Gabriel       28   110
kapitein Ary van Loenen         Goude Reael         28    73
kapitein Evert Anthonissen      Hollandia           32   110
kapitein Gillis Thyssen Campen  Groningen           40   175


Commander:                      Ship                  Guns Crew
kapitein Jan Heck               Eenhoorn                    80
kapitein Gerrit Munt            Lastdrager            32    60
kapitein Jan Backer             Harder                31    80
(the capatain is called "Capt. de Harder")
kapitein Roetjes                Fasant van Medemblik        90
(I now believe that the document has "Capt. Roetjes")
