Well, I guess they figure when your income comes from bottom dwellers and those on top floor you change your foraging method to suit.

Us in the middle expect a fair deal.

Then there is stocking low volume items and isolation. Not that much is “in stock” anymore.

It’s all too easy to forget the very real cost of holding stock, especially in a low volume market like the marine industry. 
if you can wait for the drop shipped item from the us, and also the extra delay from COVID and potentially some justifiable interest from customs then go for it.

 If you need it tomorrow, it’s not unreasonable to pay for the convenience.

I do concede the 400% markup quoted above does seem a bit rich though
