Only a few problems with the whole "just carry it over yourself" plan.

1. There's such a thing as costal importation regulations.
2. The US Coast Guard.
3. The foreign coast guard.
4. You'd need a bigger boat.
5. If anyone caught you importing goods that were regulated in a black-market style circuit, you'd be in deep shyt.
6. The amount you'd spend doing it would be less than just shipping it. UPS and FedEx ship overseas, even if your vendor won't.

Seriously, though. If you know someone in the States, and you don't want to pay the extra bucks to buy stuff in another country, have them buy it and then FedEx/UPS it to you.

You can still get caught violating the exportation/importation laws, though.

Guess the US ain't so bad after all!
