The Delmenhorst in 1658

The Dutch had taken a Swedish ship in the Baltic in 1658 and used the ship in service as the Delmenhorst. The Delmenhorst was about the size of directors' ships from the First Anglo-Dutch War. There are conflicting dimensions. The smaller is 125ft x 28ft x 11ft-9in, although this might be in Danish feet. The larger is 138-1/2ft x 31ft x 13ft. The ship carried 36 guns. This is based on information from Ron van Maanen's comprehensive list.
