Default A Wonky Question about Starship Mortgages

Mortgages on a Type A are 150,000 a month. The owner of the ship is paying, according the Book 2 rules, 1/240th of the cash price each month for 480 months (40 years). This assumes 12 months a year (12 payments a year for 40 years.)

However, for ease of play and bookkeeping, the Imperium broke the calendar year into 13 months of four weeks each. This is great... but now a captain is making 13 payments a year, not 12.

I was wondering if folks ending up reducing the mortgage fees to KCr138 a month, or kept the KCr150 knowing it would end the mortgage payments 4 years early.

I have no preference, and doubt a ship will ever be paid off in a game. But it does affect how much money a captain owes ever month, which affects cash flow.
