Came upon this interesting take on “Boat Asia 2012”, with some nice photos. I did’nt make it along to the show so interesting to get this persons account on the show. Must say it looks like the 2012 edition was quite a bit smaller than previous years shows. All credits to http://ponderouspilgrim.wordpress.com for the article and photos.

Decent enough interior, though “golf museum” it isn’t really, unless you count a bunch of clubs and rooms named after championships.
