Chapter 9 begins with Jack's log notation, dated Wednesday 24 December, and Thursday, 25 December. The chapter marks the first success of a fothering-sail to stem the leak after striking the ice. As such, it must be Christmas 1811. At this date in 1812 the war with the United States would have begun which is not consistent with plot developments. If this conclusion is correct the article can be corrected in terms of the referenced date.
