My idea for retirement in 4 years is to have a real wake boat and provide the boat and Captain (me) for a 4 or 8 hour rental block of wake surfing/wake boarding. I will pick your party up at your lake/rental cottage on one of the finger lakes and provide 4 to 8 hours of surfing. Everyone wants to surf these days (low impact, easier to get up and stay up, old, young) its the fastest growing water sport. This way they don't have to worry about operation/wake/ballast/boards/rope/equip etc..I drop them back off at their property for lunch or finish for the day. This way I trailer, I drive and I get to have total control of the boat. There are so many people with tons of $$ who rent on the finger lakes every season and don't want to be bothered/hassle (pickup/dropoff) a rental boat from a marina. Custom service and I'll even provide lunch and drinks under several different package options. Talking with many marinas while fueling this year, they cant keep up with the demand on rentals they are booked a year ahead...
I do agree with everyone...no way will I ever rent my boat out or even let a relative touch my boat, so I would lose it if I rented it. I would have to get another boat just for rentals...Captain (something nautical)'s Surf School! Look for it in your local BoatUS Magazine...coming to a lake near you!

Do you need a special captain's license to do this?

I think it is all dependent on where you are.Texas inland lakes you don’t, a bunch of people that were renting from Miami before they move to Texas said that they were strict about it there and you did need license and permits to operate.

Boatus magazine just had an article on illegal charters in Florida.
