You can sink a ship and get credit without the ship fully sinking. This is easiest to do in calm weather.

If you leave the ship behind and follow the convoy, several hours later you will pass more then 35km from the ship. At this point the game stops tracking that ship in detail and instead just tracks its approx stats.

On of the stats lost is the damage the ship has. So what will happen is that the ship will suddenly refloat and steam to its place in the convoy.

AFAIK you need to sink the ship from scratch to bring it down again. (You can sink a nelson in one shot.) But then I avoid the situation where this can happen so it isn't like I am speaking from thousands of contacts of this nature.

You will not get credit for sinking the ship as you already have credit for its sinking.
