absolutely it still runs. after 14 years in storage it kicked right over unbelievable. I also have a single ski loadrite trailer. I was going to sell it all for $500-$750. Now maybe more. The new ones look nice.
Now I am 50 years old but in excellent shape I think it time for a sit down machine. I also have a 27' Maxum.
If I lived closer to you, I would buy that thing in a heartbeat! I understand what you mean about sit downs though. A few years back, I had to go on workmans comp for almost 3 years because I hurt both of my knees. Since then, I just don't ride my stand up like I used to do. It gets run less and less just because I can't physically be able to do what I used to do.
