Doug Birely. Used him on Sonas and also referred a number of others to him.

Good work.

We used:

Tim Caruso for engines and generators: www.catenginesurveyor.com/
Jon Howe for hull and systems: www.marinesurveyor.com/nsg/index2.html

Both very professional and easy to work with.

I used Michael Cunningham of Sand Dollar Surveyors/Marine Surveyors Florida for a boat in that area.

The Web page shows some contact information, but I've got some different bits for Michael in my records:

Actually, if you are doing engine surveys you should use Shearwater, part of Whiticar. You will not get better in that area
This is the outfit that PassageMaker use for their diesel seminars At TrawlerFest.
They did the engine survey on Sonas, and I used them for the remediations.
Solid outfit.

Solid outfit.
We checked with Shearwater about engine work and, although they do not work on Deere engines, the shop manager invited us for coffee and spent time giving us recommendations for Deere mechanics. They have a large stock of parts and engine system supplies.

We also spent two weeks in Whiticar’s south yard addressing survey recommendations. Small, friendly yard in a pleasant area of Stuart. Staff and management very helpful and professional, providing options and practical opinions. We were fairly experienced with boat work so they allowed us to work on our own and often alongside their technicians. Productive and educational.
