Dunno, Mike. About 2 years ago Florida got their knickers in a knot when they decided to make Florida DL's a DHS-compliant SecureID and they changed all sorts of things. If your paperwork predates that, see what happens on renewal. Before the change, they used whatever name you presented to them. Afterwards? Nope, your name will be exactly what it is on your federal or other source ID, not one letter different.

All sorts of changes.

The point being, paperwork will vary by the time and place it is issued. Very few places give a damn about making exceptions for vagrants [sic] living on boats. Folks can figure it out for themselves, the rules for wherever they are, are available to the public. Always.
