Firstly let me say I know nix about the Caribbean so my response is probably wrong and a little cheeky.
Having said that, I know at least three island groups that have a given number of charter licenses and if you don't get one of them you will not be allowed to trade.
Other folks that I know had to buy the "license" as a going concern business with the boat and all the other baggage. They then sold the boat on and replaced it with a new one of their choice but it cost them a bucket full of money and made it real difficult for the business to be profitable.
