Screen Names

Everyone tell what your screen name means. Some are pretty self explainable, but I bet some are pretty cool!

Ill start

I have studied Kung Fu for 20 years. Gongchuan means (basically) hard fist or fists. Its a nickname that was given to me when I was younger.

Mine's not cool either.  I am a long time Hydrodyne owner and I live in Indiana.  This will be my first season behind an American Skier.  I have a pretty good feeling that I won't be missing the Dyne after this season.

Gongchaun,

Check out www.hydrodyners.com.  That site will tell just about anything you would like to know about Hydrodynes.

Well, isnt that interesting! I lived on a river (Lake Marin) for a good deal of my youth and I have seen alot of boats, but I have never seen one of those.

And while Ive got your attention, I would love to see some pictures of your 86 Barefoot Skier!

Gongchuan,


Pictures will be coming soon.  I have been feverishly turning wrench to get her back together.  Once she shines, I will post some pictures.

I am in the same "boat" if you will. Just did a complete engine rebuild, new floors, carpet should be going in this week, alot of parts powdercoated, waiting on some parts to show up........ I know you must know what I am talking about.

What color is your Barefoot?

Mine is light gray with dark gray on the sides, stripe, and bow.  The previous owner painted in the area around the strip on the bow so it is all one solid color.  Unfortunately, that portion has faded quite considerably.  We'll just have to wait and see what the buffer can do.

I just wanted to bump this. Not a whole lot of ski action taking place this time of year and there have been several new folks that have joined up or have become more active.

Anyone else wanna share?

(By the way I changed my screen name because it made it a lot less difficult to call and talk to Ron..... so he knew who I was and what boat I was talking about. I didnt have to explain it everytime I called this way.......but it was and is on all other forums I frequent Gongchuan)

My freshman year in high school one of my coach's called me "Gonzo" and it stuck ever since.  Last name being Gonzalez there is a few Gonzo's out there.

Was watching an episode of 'SpongeBob SquarePants' - the one where SpongeBob was teaching Patrick how to blow bubbles.  One of the most important techniques is the Pelvic Thrust...but when you do it, you have to make the "Woo" sound.  So..."Pelvic Woo" became the name of my '88 Advance...totally G-rated.  I'd like to name the '90 Comanche, "Pelvic Woo, Too" but the wife said no fargin' way!
