Ships are considered as operating domestically when they do not travel to foreign ports or do not transmit radio communications to foreign stations. Sailing in international waters is permitted, so long as the previous conditions are met. If you travel to a foreign port (e.g., Canada, Mexico, Bahamas, British Virgin Islands), a license is required. Additionally, if you travel to a foreign port, you are required to have an operator permit.
Btrayfors, you dont have to answer nothing if you dont like what people are asking, find something else to do...

In the USA, you don't need a license for MARINE VHF as long as the VHF radio is on the boat. Land based VHF Marine needs a license (marina etc).

Amateur Radio VHF requires a license.......LL
