Hello Odette-Maria,

My grandfather-in-law worked on the Willem Barendsz about 50 years ago, we have a sperm whale tooth that was carved by him. What's interesting is that on the back is hand carved Vinke and Co, I presumed that was the ship owner or company that operated the boat. It was great to read your confirmation. He lived in Vlaardingen, Holland at the time. Perhaps he knew your father!
