NON-STRUCTURAL SPLINTER PROTECTION
 
     
 
SUMMARY
 
     
          Information is not available as to mine protection, other than that the vessels were originally built with propeller, plane and rudder guards, with cable cutters forward, and with clearing wires.  
          The guards remain, but the cable cutting devices were removed.  The clearing wires have been modified by eliminating the saw tooth surface on the extreme forward end of the vessel.  
          Information is not locally available with regard to the type of degaussing employed.
