Kayaks Mon 27th Jan

Does anyone know who owns the 3 kayaks currently stored (!) under the balcony.
In an effort to tidy up the area we would like to remove them but before disposal we wondered if someone would like to admit ownership.
we are reasonably sure the red and green kayaks have been used for safety boat drills in the past but the actual owners of these is unclear.
Any information, factual or just hearsay would be most welcome....
Also if anyone has any old large paintbrushes and rollers they no longer need (dont have to be in pristine condition) can they deposit them inside the clubhouse for use in forthcoming work party.
