    Factory 550 reed pipe and waterbox. How rare?

    To make a long story short I have the above listed items that are both basically brand-new. The water box has a couple of small scratches shown in the picture just from taking it in and out of ski one time. I will not be using the water box no matter what as it is obnoxiously loud. Really loud, at least it was in my ski. I mounted both in my ski at the same time and incorrectly blamed the pipe for the noise level. Removed the pipe, kept the water box in and it was still just as loud. So then I took the water box out also returning it to stock. Considering putting the pipe back in my ski before selling it this spring or summer. I have about given up trying to figure out what these are worth because I can't find anybody selling them. If anybody could help me figure out what these are worth it would help me decide which direction to go. Thanks.

    Lots of waterboxes floating around. Not many late model reed pipes like yours.

    I actually have mixed emotions about even selling the water box, knowing it will then be used to annoy other boaters and people that live along the shoreline somewhere. Very disappointing purchase. In the late 80s I had a chance to ride a 550 that had a mariner aluminum water box. It was the stamped aluminum type like the factory pipe product. Only difference it wasn't all that loud and had just plain awesome tone and sound.
