Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
The U.S. Naval Academy Museum site has a slide show of the Rogers ship model collection including two slides of a model that is said to be of the royal yacht Henrietta of 1679 -presumably a forerunner to the ship visited by Sam. It is a pretty ship.

No, I meant that the ship visited by Sam was presumably an earlier version of the yacht displayed at the Naval Academy site. The photographs of the model are still worth seeing because they give a vivid impression of the high quality of the ship models produced by the English shipwrights in Sam's day.
