"in the interest of full disclosure. . . the previous owner (2015) made it known to the current owner that while he was taxiing, a strong gust caused him to swerve off the runway for a second before gaining control again. when he was pushing the plane back in the hangar. . . he noticed about 1/8" of the tip of one of the wooden blades was chipped off. There was no change in RPM and it was NOT a sudden stoppage. He didnt even know it happened, A new prop was installed and log entry made".
