Today I received my copy of the book "In Tekening Gebracht" by Ab Hoving and AA.Lemmers.

Synopsis:
Dutch shipbuilding experienced a number of important developments in the eighteenth century, of which the introduction of ship drawing may be regarded as the most pervasive. The use of design and construction drawings from around 1725 marked a break with the artisanal construction methods of the previous centuries and the transition from traditional, artisanal management to a modern, technological approach. This crucial transition was accompanied by a riot of national proportions, which was indulged in fierce polemics. The cause of this was the appointment of British shipbuilders to the Admiralty of Amsterdam, while the Dutch shipbuilding industry was accused of backwardness - an accusation that was unjustified, as this study demonstrates for the first time. The analysis of the drawing techniques provides new insight into the knowledge and skills of the shipbuilders of that time. In additional contributions from renowned naval engineers, designs from the time are examined.
