TXS-ALAMO is on a distinguished road
Before contacting any "Documentation Services", call the USCG Documentation office. They are very helpful and can answer all your questions. You can document the vessel yourself at a much cheaper cost if you can follow all the requirements the USCG gives you. In my opinion, all the "documentation services" are a rip-off. Even Boats US and West Marine charge way too much. The USCG will even call you if something is wrong with your documentation. My total cost to document my US boat was $81.00 this year. Renewals are yearly and cost free.
