Going on McKay's initial estimate of around 60 before the Wraith attacked Atlantis in Season 1. I know this is quite specific, i dont expect anything more than a general estimation but if you have taken the time to count during a previous re-watch i'd be really grateful. I'll have to remember to do this myself next time if no-one has the exact number.

That says nothing for them rebuilding more Hive ships

the ease at which they are used for combat suggests they are rather expendable

Was it mentioned in some episode that the wraith don't have the ability to build new ships? Maybe im imagining it hmmmm

in Alliances the wraith did say that the keepers don't help maintain the fleet anymore

Yes thats the one Im thinking of, that would seem to indicate that they aren't making any new onces, that was in Allies in season 2, though that doesn't mean that the wraith didn't start up making new ships, either by growing or building or whatever they do.... tbh I think that theres just going to be enough ships for whatever the plot calls for
