After thinking about it & looking in the manual, I don't know why a surface ship would not be kept in raider mode. Is there some disadvantage I don't know about?
Please tell. Thanks.

Ships, while raiding convoys, use supply. After few turns of raiding supply will be depleted, making them less effective in combat.

Thanks for the info. I knew there had to be some effect but I didn't know what it was.

It can also give their position away, as the enemy will see a ? showing their last raiding location, and that might not be what you want.

Just to be clear:
If a surface ship is sailing in the open seas and not raiding a convoy route, does it use supply or does a ? appear to show location.
If not then a ship could be in raider mode with no effect if it is on the open seas.
correct?

Correct, even if in raider mode, a raider only potentially shows a ? if actually raiding and will only lose a supply point if raiding as well.

So in a round about way, I am back to my original question:
Is there any disadvantage in keeping a surface ship in raider mode all the time unless you actually don't want to raid a convoy route.

There is none.
Unless you don't want to raid.
