PADI has a book called "Business of Diving" or something along those lines. It will give you a pro forma on the financials of running a shop. Of course, that will vary market by market. To figure out what you feed into that model, you can pull the Dunn and Bradstreet reports on the local shops to see what type of revenue/income they actually pull in and what types of assets they have on their books (potential start up costs). I did all of this once, spent a fair amount on those reports, and determined I should keep my day job and use the dough to go divin!!
