I think we are looking at this differently.
First even if book publishers are outsourcing it is to a bigger printer, not some guy with a photocopier in his basement...
and those who are outsourcing, likely they are outsourcing Stephen King novels, not Kilgore Trout.
If I read you right, you are saying that O'day is going to outsource boat building to a guy with a 3-D printer --- is that right?
