I had twice similar situation.
Once try to kill Fiji in Scapa Flow.
Everything was OK till last moment - ship sunk
but she was not added to my Captain's Log.
The same I observed ystd in Gibraltar and T3.
Sunk her first time by deck gun.
I thought something was done wrongly so after re-loading I attacked by torps.
Vessel sunk and disappeared - no mark on the map or in Captain's Log.
Have you seen such ghost ships ?

I€m having a similar problem with my saves putting my achievements back to zero.

Have you tried reporting the sinking? See if your sinking is recorded then.

maybe if your navigator isn't at his station, you could have problems too!
Try have him present when attacking!

It must be something else.
I sunk so many other ships and only twice I couldn't receive confirmation in log.

I had the same problem. According to some the ships in the harbor still are not "sunk". Their decks may not be awash or they may be salvagable.

Weird. It doesnt appear, nor as enemy nor as neutral nor as friendly target?

It was the Black Pearl. It cannot die because it was not there to begin with...Arrrrggh!

I run 1.4 no mods but never had that glitch in the open ocean in 10 careers. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

In harbours they sometimes can't sink properly, just settle down a few feet and then you don't always get the credit. Strange that.

The ship actually needs to be under, or heading under. Half floating is not credited, and if you look at the U-boat.net site, you'll see that Kaluens were only credited with damage, not as tonnage sunk. Perhaps this is something a mod boffin can do

It can be true - Black Pearl sailing again in cinemas !

Yes - all "ghost" ships sunk on shallow waters !

This problem is very common in online play, I experience it often (running 1.4 no mods). However, I don't beleive I've ever seen it in single play.
