I hadn't looked closely at the chest before and assumed the star shape in the x*+c was an asterisk. To me this meant follow the mathematical rules and assume X and C are Roman numerals (i.e. 10 and 100).
Starting in the upper left as you would with a book and continuing counterclockwise to follow the mathematical rules gives you the equation 10 * 100 + 10 (i.e. X * C + X) -= 1010.
The planks of the shipwreck form an E. Drop the zero from the above equation and we get 101 E.
We see 101 E on the orange buoy on the Lobsterman page.
X happens to be the postal code for the Canadian Northwest territories and the Lobsterman is pointing up at the border phrase North West.
All of this means ... likely nothing. I think the Lobsterman is a red herring page, and I think that asterisk is a compass rose. But it just shows how you can find so many (likely) unintended connections in this book.
