Outsourcing seems to be the new trend in boat building these days, Dragon outsources the almost all facets of the process .... I heard Chief had a similar program going . I'm sure there are benefits to this ... Obviously, if you've got a brand X .... built up at Douglas ... people will react positively to that ,one would think . However , the one aspect I would have reservations about is the accountability factor. When something is not quite right , there isn't ONE "go to guy" to make the problem go away ? Just my .02 . When my **** goes bad (and they ALL do) I want to make 1 phone call and have it taken care of .
