Here's a couple of pictures of the propulsion end of several typical Novi's.The one on the left is local boat, no cage around wheel. Second has cage and zinks on rudder. Third has cage and hole in rudder so that shaft can be pulled without removing rudder. All three boats have a 4 bladed wheel which is typical. The cage is used to prevent the pot lines from getting caught in the wheel. The Warlock may or may not have had a cage but most likely would have had a 4 or 5 bladed wheel.
