This ship was built at Nyholm, Copenhagen according to its record card at skibregister at the Royal Danish Naval Museum. The webaddress has the name as Justinian(1707), but the card has the name Justitia(1707)

The Metric Equivalent is just the Danish feet repeated, according to Wiki Danish Fod were 12.356 inches and the Alen were 2 Fod. Based on other 80 gun 3rd rates of the period 168 Fod makes sense, 168 Alen would be too long for a wooden ship.
