If you have a reciept of ownership, you get it licensed through The Port Authority. You must have the name on the boat, running lights, first aid kit, life jackets, fire exenquisher,(SP?) anchor and ladder, and motor, they come around and register boats if you are in a hurry you can call the office in Belize City and pay for them to come over sooner. If you are a resident and your boat is on the smaller side, say under 20 ft, you do not need a Captains license,if it is for your own private use. however they are trying to change that, if you are not a resident I have no clue?????
