Need Excellent / Proven Surveyors...

Need some help... I'm looking at a boat in the Fort Myers area and am in need of excellent / proven surveyors. I'm thinking one to do a normal/overall survey, and another to do an engine and possibly genny survey (Yanmar 6LYA-STP/Kohler 8kw). I can probably start with the SAMS site, and locate local Yanmar and Kohler distributors, etc., but rather than start with a list of unknown names, I'd really like to try to get some referrals from been-there-done-that forum members who are very happy with the knowledge, experience level, thoroughness, and overall experience they had when going through the survey process on their boats. Any (and all) input is GREATLY appreciated. Experience surveying Mainships would be helpful.
Thx Karl

I may also be looking for engine and hull surveyors, but for SE Florida... from Ft. Pierce down to Ft. Lauderdale.

Engine: Older Cat and newer Cummins 380 (common rail).

Any recommendations are appreciated.
