At least one of the line cutter manufacturers advertises that the US Coast Guard is one of their customers.
I can understand with their responsibilities, they would not want to worry about cutting a line in need...but some places they go (if they do indeed snag pots), they would snag a LOT...and I can't imagine the fishermen would appreciate all those cut lines & lost gear.
It's not whether you're paranoid...it's whether you're paranoid enough.
