SWEDEN WARSHIPS 1532-1860 (c. 10 guns and more)

(notice : All dimensions are in swedish feet = 296,9 mm,)
(guns are probably measured by Germans pound, which is very close to 0.5 kg. However, there was change of measurement sometime in 17th. Century)

Lenght measured from stem to sternpost, beam measured inside planking and draught is measured from 1678.
The depth (“djup I rummet”) was probably measured in Dutch way (in1620/1630s).
