Loaned to the U.S. Naval Reserve during WW1, the "Confrey" was said to be "the fastest boat in Boothbay Harbor and Eastern Maine" at that time. The "Confrey" is shown here on patrol in Boothbay Harbor in 1917, with Raymond W. Stanley at the helm.

Raymond Stanley enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserve before graduating from Harvard in 1917, and served as Quartermaster 1st Class. He was assigned to the USS Empress (a motor launch owned by his father, F.E. Stanley, and leased to the navy during WW1) and other patrol vessels in Boothbay Harbor.
