Nikki Development Upgrades

The mission of Skeeta Watersports is to continually improve the boat wherever possible without affecting the one design performance.
These improvements will be made to improve the ease of use, durability and appearance. No changes made will be leaps in performance unless agreed upon by the class.

On this page you will find a list of changes that have been made along the way and which boats those changes start from.
Some boats will have been already upgraded from manufacture.
