Default Type C Starport - "reasonable repairs"

I assume this subject has come up repeatedly before, but I cannot find a thread using the search function or Google so I apologize in advance for picking at old scabs.

Traveller LBB3 page 5: C Routine quality installation. Only unrefined fuel available. Reasonable repair facilities are present. Scout base (with refined fuel available for scouts) is present on a throw of 8+.

Type A and B Starports have " Annual maintenance over-haul available." listed.


So what is "reasonable"? Type D Starports have no repair facilities at all, which implies that reasonable might be sugar-coating it a little since there's no bottom limit?

Looking at the chart, a roll of 9+ means no repairs at all so 27% of all worlds have no way of repairing a starship. If say, a Jump Drive isn't seen as "reasonable repairs" that would mean that 58% of all systems would be unable to maintain interstellar travel.

I keep thinking about this and what it means for the implied setting, but I would love some to hear what others have done or been thinking about this.
