Default Garage sale find

My wife and I were out garage sell shopping on Saturday, and I ran acrossed these. I fly rubber powered model airplanes so I have no use for them.
I also have the boat I think it's a Dumas 55 Scarab
Just looking for information on what they are and what they are worth?

As with any used stuff they are worth what people will pay.

The out drives could have some Value to the right person, I would kick some tires on them, the nitro motors, are worth what you can get. So are the drives really, but there are collector type people out there on that kind of stuff.

Thank you for the feed back, I will post some pictures of the boat tomorrow, there is also a smaller boat hull that was in the collection. are far as how much this stuff is worth I do not know yet.
I do not have a computer at home so it's a little hard to do research, my time on my works computer is limited.

Justaddwata was having moderator withdraws in the boat section...LOL, You are asking for information in the right spot. those drives are not eating anything, let them sit till you have a idea. then post them in the for sale section , if you decide to sell them, scale guys love that stuff. 90% of the guys on forums want to know 2 things only....How fast and how much. Scale drives do not make good speed. but they look great. scale guys love that kind of stuff and many will pay for it, The model Rail road side of model boating, it has collector value if you find the right person.

The small hull looks like an r/c flatbottom drag boat hull. Is it a shallow V as the one below ? I think it was a model of a Sanger dragboat.
