Re: Starting a business?
You will have alot of competition. I just did a quick web search and found no less than 10 people doing the same thing you are planning to do. I would be be very careful.
That being said you need at least the following:
USCG License (requires a minimum of 360 days documented sea time serving as crew, 90 of those days must be within the last 3-5 years, passing the USCG License exam, passing a medical physical, criminal backgroun check, and a drug test);
Auxillary Sailing Endorsement on your license;
Transit Worker Identification Card (TWIC);
Certificate to prove you are in a Random Drug Testing Program;
Commercial Marine, and Business Insurance (you won't get dock space without it);
USCG Boat Documentation and Maryland Boat Registration;
All appropriate business licenses from Maryland and Annapollis;
There isn't a device on this world that can measure the indifference I have for that statement.
