Is it just a paper element? If so, low pressure through an air blower from the inside of the filter out. If you want a filter to keep and clean over and over you want a K&N. Then you can clean and re-oil over and over. All my boat has is a flame arrestor. It's just a metal screen, no element type filter at all.

I've never seen a paper element used on a boat. Every merc I've seen used a flame arrester like Sparky mentioned. Simple green cleans those up really nice.

Some engines did come with a K$N style filter. If that is the case goto K$N's website where you will find cleaning instructions. The metal flame arrestors are easy to clean using a solvent or brake and parts cleaner along with compressed air.
