    Don't think you really need one, the metal spark arrestors do not really restrict airflow much if at all.

    As long as it meets SAE-J-1928 or UL 1111 and marked then it is OK. Looking cool and being functional and legal are two separate things. It looks like there are some out there but make sure they have the requirements stamped on the filter or they aren't legal.

    Gasoline engines installed in a vessel after April 25, 1940, except outboard motors, must be equipped with an acceptable means of backfire flame control. The device must be suitably attached to the air intake with a flame tight connection and is required to be Coast Guard approved or comply with SAE-J-1928 or UL 1111 standards and marked accordingly.

    I have not used one, but according to K&N it looks like this is the correct one:
