The pilot reported to a Federal Aviation Administration Inspector from the Boise Flight Standards District Office and in a subsequent written statement, that during the landing roll with a 90 degree crosswind on runway 28L, the aircraft encountered a gust of wind. The aircraft veered to the side of the runway and the right wing contacted a runway edge light, and the propeller contacted the ground. Maintenance personnel performing repairs on the aircraft reported that the former tip rib on the right wing was damaged, and approximately 12 to 16 inches of leading edge wing skin, requiring an additional seam, was spliced in.
At 1406, the Boise airport was reporting winds from 180 degrees at nine knots, gusting to 16 knots.
