It has been two blasts for as long as submarines have been operating in the US Navy.

What if it was three blasts during WWII? They did have a former submariner on hand as technical advisor through out filming. He had served during WWII and afterwards. So if he had no problem with it, maybe he didn't notice, it was unimportant, or was three blasts to dive and four blasts for emergency surface during WWII and was later shortened to save time.
