The ship Sint Willeboort of the Hoorn Chamber of the VOC

One of the photographs that I have received this month is an inventory for the ship Sint Willeboort, a ship of the Hoorn Chamber of the VOC. The inventory is from about 21 June 1653, after the Battle of the Gabbard (or the Zeeslag bij Nieuwpoort). The list of shot carried seems rather small in number:
100 18pdr shot
100 12pdr shot
 80  8pdr shot
 70  6pdr shot
100  4pdr shot
 40  3pdr shot

The Sint Willeboort carried 27 guns, ranging from 3pdr to 18pdr.
