Not to be picky but just to keep the terminology straight ... your vessel is Federally Licensed. We do not have provincial registration or licensure in Canada. Licensed, Regisistered, Documented .... What's the Difference
That said, no issue with a Canadian licensed boat entering Bahamas. We are there most winters and know many licensed Canadian boats who do the trip annually. Further afield can be problematic but Bahamas are fine.
