I would imagine you would have to be a USCG certified captain to teach any type of boating skills. This is basically hiring out a boat for a charter which I know requires liability insurance and a USCG license. I'm sure their are many people out there with the skills but without the proper paperwork it doesn't mean much to an insurance company.
The idea is a good one as many boaters have the funds to purchase a boat but most do not have the skills to run it safely at the current speed an quarters such as a poker run.
