The 'Gelderland' and other ships
In the left foreground the 'Gelderland' is in starboard-quarter view, identified from the two lions combatant on her tafferel. She is lying with her topsails atrip, fore course clewed up and topgallantsails loosed on the cap. There are men on the main yard furling sails. Originally there was a pendant at the main but the tops of the masts have been cut off and redrawn lower down. Ten ships are in the background, including a large ship on the right which may have a flag and pendant at the main. In the foreground left and right, there are two boats (both marked in brown in k with a cross and the letter 'd') pulling towards the ships. Another boat in the centre is marked 'k'. The drawing is number '60', altered from '59'.
