Lost does not equal stolen, more details would be appropriate before people yell get a rope.

If I found an item I had no use for on the interstate that had value (assuming no contact information) on it, I would probably sell it too. Would like to think if it was as valuable as a rafting equipment I would make a very good faith attempt at finding owner, but past that.....

Does sound strange though and my scenario assumes a lot as well, probably had contact info and they still tried to sell it....

it fell off the trailer by the time they turned around (15 min max) it was all gone - to me that = stolen if i found something on the side of the road as big as a raft there are lots of ways to try to find the owner - cops, message boards, fliers or waiting more then 15 min where it was found. if all of that didn't work after several week of trying to locate the owners then sell it, but posting it 2 days after scooping it up off the side of the road = rope worthy to me

If they had time to post it FOR SALE on Craigslist, they had time to post it as as a LOST/FOUND item and wait a couple of days.

Not completely sure how one does not notice two boats flying off the trailer as you roll down the interstate but all involved should consider themselves lucky that it didn't wipe out somebody following behind and that you still got your rig back. Time to give sis a lesson in loading the trailer correctly...
