Do you wear masks when going out boating ? How can you still permited to use 10:1 - 25: 1 polluting engines and stop importing 50:1 2 stroke engines ? Or are still allowed to make personal imports ?

John sells masks but they are more for the rain/spray/wind!
Hey JK - could you add a particulate filter to your terrorist masks for us 2-stroke users?

The 10:1 and 25:1 engines are VERY old. My last 10:1 Seagull was from 1966.
