Need Surveyor in Houston area for pre-purchase survey

I am fairly new to sailing and this forum and have made an offer on an exceptionally clean boat located in the Kemah/ Clear Lake, Texas area (Waterford Marina) and am looking for a reputable surveyor that knows sloops.

Even though the boat is clean and owner has spent considerable money on it, I still want to get a thorough survey including haul-out and sea test. Its a 40 year old boat.

I'm also wondering if there is a standard checklist that surveyors use. Most claim that they check all systems - but they don't specify the systems.

When I bought my sailboat I had a certified surveyor, Louis Stahlberg, survey our boat. He came highly recommended and I thought he did a really good job. Of course, I know a lot more about boats than I did 4 years ago. Our boat was sold by Little Yacht Sales.
