    Also, a lot of the manpower used in building worthless ships could've been used elsewhere. From transportation industry to riflemen, AA Gunners, coastal battery garrisons, etc.
    While you are right, fuel was the Achilles heel of the third reich, the colossal naval mistake was the invasion of Norway, and the huge infrastructure used to control ,sort of, it's coast.

    The small German fleet was decimated.

    so, having and using the surface Kriegsmarine created the Reich's big first mistake.....
