Selling photos of boats

I was talking to Mom today and she mentioned that some friends of hers
sell photos of people's boats:

I know how the racecar photo business works, I've bought quite a few
of those over the years. Living on the coast, I can see a business
opportunity here, assuming it isn't already filled. 

It shouldn't be too hard figuring out how to get the shots of the
boats, and with a bit of practice, a tripod and my bigma, I should be
able to work out the technical issues, but I'm not sure how to work
out the business end. How to connect with the customers to give them
the opportunity to buy my photos.

Any suggestions?

The first step is learning to take great photos, 
the second step is learning to throw away ones that are merely good.
