1917-1919 George F. Lawley & Son – 25’ Launch, #1377, “The Only One”. Hull is Mahogany over Mahogany over sawn and steamed White Oak frames with Bronze hardware & fittings. The engine (Chris Craft Marine (K) engine, straight 6-RWC) is mounted forward of cockpit with sliding hatch and fold down windshield. The cockpit accommodates seating for 6 people. Aptly named “The Only One”, she was designed by Walter J. McInnis and built by George Lawley & Son boat builders in Neponset, MA. Research by George Sperry Marine Surveys uncovered this boat was one of Lawleys featured boats at the 1917 Motorboat Show in New York City. Further research also revealed she was originally sold on June 16, 1917 to Mr. Hugh McCullock (residence unknown). She was purchased by our family in 1971 from personal friends on Lake George and according to family stories they purchased this boat from a woman who was also from Lake George. To the best of my knowledge, the boat has resided on Lake George since perhaps the mid 40’s. In the 1980’s we joined the Lawley Boat Owners Association to uncover more history and perhaps some sister ships. Through this group we were introduced to many proud owners of beautiful “Lawley Built” boats but never discovered another Lawley runabout like The Only One.
