SUMMARY
 
     
          A single clearing line is provided from the stern to the forward end of the fairwater.  A double clearing line leads aft from the after end of the chariot bridge to the stern of the vessel.  Originally a cable cutter was fitted at the forward end of the clearing line, but this has been removed some time after completion of the vessel.  
          Awnings and stanchions had originally been contemplated, but neither were on board at the time of surrender.  
          Canvas was not used for bunk bottoms.  Instead, spring bottoms were provided.  
          Weather cloths were originally carried around above the bridge bulwark, but were deleted as a wartime measure.  
          There is nothing unusual or remarkable evident under this head, and further exploitation is not recommended.
