But then the closest escort came racing in. As it was passing astern of me I hoped it would pass by without seeing me. But then a searchlight came on and shortly thereafter it fired at me, forcing me to crashdive. At least I was not hit this time before I could dive. Don't mind being found by the escort, that at least makes sense.

A depthcharge barrage followed for 30 minutes, resulting in minor damage. Various escorts kept circling me for 1.5 more hours therafter and then disappeared. So it is possible to do a surface attack and survive. But I have no idea why both attacks gave such different responses by the merchants. The first response was ridiculous and gave me no chance whatsoever.

I will try this same attack a few more times with the old save to see what will happen and if I can manage to escape on the surface.
good luck i try to keep a low profile and wake down much has possible i'm playing the latest TWoS update it after playing for awhile the game i think gets corrupt and start acting up so i save and relog has much as i can
