I wasn't aware you were using that mod. In that case you have two options. Don't attempt to generate a solution, open distance and disengage, which is probably what the real skippers did. There will be more targets and better weather.

Or develop a solution with hydrophone bearings only. It's not too difficult, but it is time consuming and laborious, however it can be done. It's probably how HMS Venturer developed their solution that sunk U-864. If you can pull it off, it's extremely satisfying.
