2013 C&C Northeast Rendezvous on Block Island

For all you C&C built and/or designed enthusiasts;

If you can't make it, but you had a nagging question you always wanted to ask Rob Ball, here is your chance.

Post the question here and during the Q&A part of Rob Balls talk we will try to get to as many of your queries as possible, or until he can't take it any more and gets a restraining order.

For those of you who haven't a clue what I'm on about, here is the low down :
