One of my current PBEM opponents has really maximized his ASW fleets and I'm seeing an 8-10% ASW bonus against my UBoats in the BOA now and taking 2 damage to at least 1 UBoat on a lot of turns (some in a row). Should I now split my 2 Uboat fleets into single hunters?
I send them back to Germany (or Norway) as soon as they get 2 damage steps.

Go to different zones. You have 4 to choose from.

NA, SA, USA, African

So spend PP on oilers then and keep Uboats in groups of at least 2 subs? Africa and USA will be easier to reach after France falls, otherwise too far from Germany/Norway to stay more than a turn before heading back (takes 2 OP x 2 moves to get far enough away from the hunter packs. 24 hexes are a lot of reach for the sub hunters.

note: Something that I learnt the hard way. Fleets that end their movement with zero operation points inflict 50% the damage just like in pursuit combat (This is part of the convoy attack rule p. 81). So when I'd max my movement, I was only causing half the damage.

I know. But I have to balance the fact that I'm doing poorly in this PBEM game in the BOA and have only 4 UBoats left with 2 in drydock for repair almost every turn (I attached a couple of screenshots, but I lost a lot of Naval points from a bonehead move with the German fleet that was intercepted and took heavy damage). Before that fleet loss, I had 12 points UBoat damage and did 14 mm damage in return. If I keep getting UBoats hit and damaged, I will have to give up the BOA (at least in this game)... so I was just trying to understand the beta ASW rules (as opposed to my lousy luck here). I'll post my other PBEM game screenshot of casualties also as it started out poorly but has begun to turn around, although I now have only 3 U-boats as 1 was sunk. In both PBEM games, I built 1 UBoat that arrived in spring 1940.
My question now is, should I just stop the U-Boat campaign and save PP's for Barbarossa?
