Looking for George on "Gracie"

Can anyone help me track down George on the catamaran "Gracie"? I believe he is based in Stuart, FL.

I had lost my VHF whip antenna somewhere between Palm Beach and Lucaya, resulting in radio transmissions of only a mile or two. While in Great Harbour Cay in the Berries, I mentioned my problem to George, who went searching and found and gave me his old (spare) whip. Two other cruisers hoisted me up the mast to replace the whip, and in the meantime George left GHC before I was able to tell him it had worked, and to thank him again.

This is part of what makes cruising such a great activity - the kindness and generosity of complete strangers! George's old whip allowed us to safely continue our planned cruise through the Berries and back.
If it sounds dumb in your head, it sounds even dumber out loud!
