--EDIT-- No that I actually went back and looked at the pictures I can see the wrap around the motor. I now share your question for John.
Sorry for jumping in with a wrong answer...
I am always curious about new ideas and I was thinking it may be there to reduce snags fighting those big fish or during casting...(?) I thought about doing this with my transom mounted trolling motor. I was thinking of adding a net bag over the top part that would drape down to the top of the transom. My fly line likes to mate
with my trolling motor when I cast from the back of my boat. Stripping baskets are useless for my wild style of casting.
John, you have an answer for us?
