Protecting people from being struck by propellers OR protecting the propeller are probably the two most common features associated with propeller guards. In addition to these features, some propeller guards have other functions or benefits.
The earliest uses of propeller guards were to protect ship propellers from being damaged by debris (floating, partial submerged, or totally submerged), rocks, shoals and other shallow water hazards. Some early recreational boat propeller guards also protected propellers from impacting submerged trees, submerged tree stumps, running aground and weed entanglement.
