if you are not manually piloting your u-boat out of port them you are crashing into the docks. Really can't plot a course out of the harbor.

The map isn't accurate at small scales. If you plot a course from Kiel, for instance, you can run aground on what appears to be water on the map. Maybe it's just very shallow water, but it's not marked as such on the map. The only solution I know of is to manually steer the boat out of the tightest channels into more open water before plotting a course and going to time acceleration.
