T-shirt Head Wrap

What they’ll do? Three bangkeros will hold the rope then pull it abruptly at the count of three to manually start the motor of this banca. Malapascua Island, Cebu

An old t-shirt is the stereotypical head wrap or mask of bangkeros where the neck hole becomes the opening for the eyes. Frequent windy conditions on the job make this t-shirt headwear as the more secure (readily available and cheaper) option than a baseball cap.
