Need Yard recommendation - FL to TX, USA

Unfortunately, I need a yard/repair business recommendation in the Southeast US.

Severe structural damage to a 50' sailboat. The insurance company hired a naval architect to write the repair plan which we should receive later this week or next. I then will hire some folks for an estimate.

- Will need someplace that can build a cradle to support while the stringers are redone.
- Will need indoor facilities
- Will definitely need a place with a top-notch reputation and skill set
- Not concerned with cost, my FAMILY'S SAFETY is riding on this repair...plan was for this boat to do ocean crossing, not around the bouys in the bay.

The boat will have to be shipped via truck from it's current location in Florida.

I apologize for the intentional vagueness of this post, the insurance hasn't settled yet, and there is possible future litigation involved with which I don't wish to interfere.

Right now, I'm just crying until we get back on track.

Thank you for your help.
