Grebe and trumpy

Does anyone know the connection of grebe and trumpy? They are almost identical. Grebe had trumpy build him a runabout. I have the next to last Grebe built, 55ft flushdeck hull 195. I have always wondered. Both were magnificent vessels.

I am trying to remember, my father had a Grebe back in the 70's, but I believe the developer of one I think Grebe, worked for Trumpy.

I am not aware of any connection between John Trumpy and Sons of New Jersey & Annapolis and the Henry C. Grebe Company of Chicago. Both were builders of fine wooden yachts of a similar profile in the same era. Both built PT boats for the military. These two boat builders were competitors.
