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.
Thank you Charlie, those pic are great, I noticed the the rudder and prop is more foward than what I've have seen and the way I have mine mounted, hope it dosent effect the performance. thank agian Charlie
