The larger ships in Witte de With's fleet in September 1653

Perhaps someone besides me would be interested to see the list of the larger ships in Witte de With's fleet that went to Norway in September 1653. They were joined after leaving by Egbert Meeuwssen Kortenaer's squadron (he probably did not start using the Kortenaer name until later):
Adm   Ship               Guns Crew Commander
A     Huis te Swieten    56   276  vice-admiraal Witte de With
A     Huis te Cruiningen 48   250  commandeur Michiel de Ruijter
A     Amsterdam          50   210  kapitein Jan Gideonsz Verburgh
A     Vrijheid           50   210  kapitein Abraham van der Hulst
Z     nieuw Vlissingen   39   145  kapitein Jacob Wolphertszoon
