While this is true, it's not as bad a way as you suggest.

Consider that at least 1/2 of all ships are in port at any one time (the ships rotate in and out of ship going operations).

This I agree with. At any point in time, you need a certain minimum of ships. But since capabilities of a fleet change over time, that minimum will change.

Really, it's all about getting the best bang for your buck. Maybe that means more ships, maybe it means fewer; it just depends on the technology at the time.
