Thumbs up I found 4 Tunnel hulls in storage

I was snooping around at a storage place and found these 4 old Tunnel hulls,They had been there a long time ,maybe 80's? They had a name Impact on the back of them.2 looked like they had never been finished,one looked used and the other is kinda ruff. The lady at the desk said they belonged to a Doctor and he had just passed and they were tied up in a estate, She's suppose to call me when they come up for sale.Ya never know what ya might find out there Ill be going back and try and take my camera to get some better picks.

Kinda looks like something from a 007 film from the 70's.Squared off looking
