Suggestions for starting a part time charter business?

I, in land locked and dry Colorado, have a C.G. Captains 6 pack license and various ASA certifications and am considering doing part time (I need a "real" paying job) charter sailing half day trips, like dinner cruises or such. It would be on a lake considered a joke by many as it is so small, but such is life here. I am also planning to donate funds from some charter trips to kid charities. Other than insurance and regulations at the lake, any suggestions? A sample contract would help and how to deal with no wind (ie refunds?) and unruly passengers. Recommendations as to charter insurance companies would also be nice, along with your good and bad stories. Thanks. Randy
