Bombing of individual ships at sea by Radar?

Finished reading "Of Wind and Water" by James Sanders and he recounts bombing individual ships at sea using radar locating only. He was flying a Halifax bomber with Coastal Command at the time(1944) and the targets were in the Kattegat.

Anyone know when this technique began to be used and how successful?
Did US B24 attacking shipping in the China Sea use a similar approach? I read primarily it was low level visual attacks.
