I'm afraid that the picture is roughly a hundred years too late. If you go the the small-image page (there's a link above the image) you get the info about the painting, and this one is tentatively dated to the 1750s. The style of the larger ship's stern is certainly not of the diary period. Neither is the artist.

A good site, though.
