This is what a previous poster used specifically for crab and lobster pots in the northeast:

Prop protection

He reported some parasitic drag from it. Dragging sea weed on the grating might be another issue. Guess a shaft mounted line cutter is the best approach. Certainly don't plan to intentionally run over crab or lobster pots but my previous experience on the Indian River is they are hard to avoid if you go out of the channel even a small amount.
