Hi Sergio, for the merchant ships lost I would allow a generous 10nm circle of error, given that all positions were determined by celestial navigation. Even for a big well known ship such as the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal that would have had a reliable last known sinking position, still took until 2002 to find the actual wreck site and it was a very long way from the recorded sinking position.
