Particulars On 31-08-1781 the BOT sailed from Rammekens to Texel. Hence it departed on 11-09-1781; five days later the ship returned, however. According to K.A. 4390a the departing crew consisted of 267 men; during the voyage three of them deserted. The high death-rate was due to scurvy. In 1788 the BOT was laid up in the Indies. Between Texel and the Cape the BOT, the GANGES (4393), the HOLLAND (4394), the JAVA (4395), the SCHOONDERLOO (4396), the VOORBERG (4397), the ZEEPAARD (4398), and the ZEEUW (4399) were accompanied by two Dutch men-of-war. Commandeur of this fleet was Jan Paardekoper aboard the GANGES.
