I was reading Reff Ransom's website when I came across this:
December 20, 2003.
The day was clear and full of sun and I was happy to have it. Thank you oh subtle natural way of the universe for the gift. I humbly accept. I wanted to go out on the sea but it was not meant to be. I found that someone had stolen my battery and prop from my boat in the night. I would like to say this was a rare occurrence but it is not and there is no point in calling the police as they can do nothing.
Don't know if one of the props might be his but I thought I would bring this to your attention.
