SHIPS BEFORE 1648

NOTICE: all dimensions are from Amsterdam feet "Voet" (283.13mm).
The dimensions are the length from the fore side of the stem to the after side of the sternpost,the beam is
inside the planking and the depth from the rabbet(top) of the keel to the upper side of the beam amidships.
Admiralties: A=amsterdam,M=Rotterdam,Z=Zeeland,N=Noorderkwartier(north of the holland),F=Friesland
The letter "e" means it is measurement by english metod.

In Rotterdam the Rhineland foot of twelve inches (31.39 cm) was used since 1621 as the standard unit of length, while Amsterdam used
its own eleven-inch foot (28.31 cm):the Admiralties of all the provinces officially adopted the Amsterdam foot in 1653.
The metric system was adopted in 1820.

Ways of determining ship's dimensions varied in the Netherlands according to period, region and institution:
The length over stem and stern, measured on the uppermost continuous deck, was used by the Dutch East India Company and
for all other merchantmen until 1795, by the Admiralty of Amsterdam until 1728, and by the Rotterdam Admiralty between 1630 and 1777.
The length measured between stem and stern, or the length of the main deck,was used by the merchant fleet from 1795 onwards,
by the Amsterdam Admiralty from 1728 to 1820, Rotterdam from 1777 to 1820 and by all other admiralties from 1782 to 1820.
With the adoption of the metric system in 1820 the Navy started measuring between perpendiculars on the waterline.
In Zealand for some time the length of the keel was used as the principal dimension.
The width or breadth was calculated at all times at the widest section inside the ship's planking, which is on the outside of the frames.
The depth was measured in different ways. (VAN BRUGGEN 1970)
Jan Glete have estimated that one “last” was 2,5 t. of displacement, but ships which was built in Rhineland voet I have estimated that one “last” is 1/3 larger.
