Confused on how they got 5 points.

North Atlantic : 2 Ships * 1 Trading House = 2 Points
South Atlantic : 2 Ships * 2 Trading House = 4 Points

Is it because Columbia didn't ship? If so, it should explicitly say that you only score VP for ships that actually transport in the "Transporting Ships" section.

TRANSPORTING WITH SHIPS

The action cards TRANSPORT, REGION, BLUE RIBAND, GLOBAL, CARGO, and CRUISE (= cards marked with a small anchor) allow ships to transport and thus collect income. This is done as follows:
1. Each transporting steamship loses 1 coal unit. Steamships without coal cannot transport. Sailing Ships never need coal.
2. When transporting, the owner collects the ship’s income (on green background) from the bank (Important: the income is calculated in a different way when playing CARGO or CRUISE).
3. With Trade Houses, the owner receives 1 VP per ship multiplied by number of own Trade Houses in that region.

As Scoring is part of Transporting, surely it's unnecessary to say that non-transporting ships don't score? If one was meant to score all ships in regions in which shipping occurs I would think that would be called out to decouple it from transporting with individual ships.

This is where I take issue.

It should say "per transporting ship" to signify the bonus is for each ship that is transporting. Otherwise, it can lead one to believe you are getting bonuses just for having loads of ships out there - which was the case for me.

It's section three of the Transporting section. Only ships that Transport are in scope
