Default Boat Cleaning/Detailing

I have been playing with the idea of starting a small mobile detailing business for a little extra cash during the summer. I have several years of experience in the auto detailing business (it put me through college). I also completely wet sanded and buffed my 1990 fountain to a near new gloss. Any ways, do you think there is a market for this type of business (in upstate NY), and what would be your suggestion on prices?

I know of a few guys here in So Cal that do this as a full time business. The guy I use has not done my boat yet but he charges me $ 200.00 for my 36' RV, wash, wax and roof treatment.

When he is done it looks showroom new.
