I disagree. Since the publishers don't do their own printing, they have no choice but to send all of it out.

Not to a guy with a printer in his basement.

But potentially to a specialized company whose sole purpose might be to print large form factor items (which in this case would include, but not be limited to, boat hulls). I would expect said company to have multiple printers, servicing multiple clients, probably in multiple industries. An industrial 3D print shop, if you will.
